The praise poured out about our winners was amazing to hear. We appreciate all of our educators who are making a difference this school year. Congratulations again to all of our winners, and thank you to everyone who entered!
I am completely blown away by this nomination and believe that what I do is for no other reason than my love for instilling passion for learning in any way possible. My students are a big part of the highlights of my day and I am thankful everyday that I truly love my job as a teacher.
I am so honored to have been nominated for this award and thrilled to receive it! I appreciate companies like Sign Up Genius, and parents like Susy Todd, who support and reward teachers. It is a difficult but extremely rewarding job!
