The president commended her passion and "incredible devotion" to teaching during brief remarks at a White House ceremony.

Donald Trump presents Mandy Manning, an educator at Joel E. Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington, with the 2018 National Teacher of the Year award alongside Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in the White House on May 2, 2018.

In her role as National Teacher of the Year, Manning told "CBS This Morning" that she wants to share her students' stories "because I think it's vitally important, especially right now".

Manning's students are all refugees and immigrants enrolled in the "Newcomer Center" program at Joel E. Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington.

Manning also made remarks at the event, prior to the president, but reporters were allowed in the room only for the president's remarks.

Trump's administration has sought to reduce the number of refugees and immigrants entering the US illegally, arguing it is in the interest of national security. During his campaign he compared refugees fleeing war-torn Syria to a Trojan Horse carrying would-be terrorists and proposed banning Muslims from entering the country.

Manning told The Associated Press after the ceremony that she used a private moment with Trump to give him stacks of letters written by her students and members of the Spokane community.

"I am honored and excited to be the 2018 National Teacher of the Year", Manning said. Manning said the president accepted the letters and directed his staff to put them on his desk where he could read them later.

She said she told Mr Trump she hoped he reads them, and she encouraged him to visit her school. "They make the United States the lovely place that it is".

The school specialises in English language development for new refugees and immigrant students. The National Teacher of the Year Program began in 1952 and continues to highlight excellence in teaching.
