 The state's top teachers will speak next month at Emporia State University.

On Feb. 3, the 2011 Kansas Teacher of the Year and Regional Teachers of the Year will discuss with university students why they teach, and how to build relationships, manage classrooms and engage students.

The teachers will be available later in the day to answer questions from reporters on a range of subjects, including how actions by the state Legislature affect the classroom.

Emporia State is home to the National Teachers Hall of Fame. The event will include a tour of the hall.
