• ‘Chester the Cheetah’ Profiled on TV


    Chester the Cheetah has traveled all over the world and Hodgkin’s Elementary School students are learning because of it.

    For years now, Teacher Kathy Zook has taken her stuffed cheetah with her on her travels and used him and his adventures to inform students about world cultures and some of the basic elements of geography. When she is not traveling, her friends and fellow teachers also take him on the road.

    In fact, he has logged more than 100,000 airline miles.

    9News reporter Nelson Garcia, who covers the education beat, recently visited with Chester and his friends.
