I teach students from many different countries. My students have been exposed to diversity and have learned to be proud of their heritage, something that I only hope continues throughout their lives. -Mandy Stone, Charles Spencer Elementary's Teacher of the Year

I enjoy creating a learning environment that challenges students to think critically about history, while also allowing them to explore history in an interactive way. Instilling a love for history in all students is one of my favorite things about teaching. -Shelley Fandel, Ed.D., TCHS's Teacher of the Year

My favorite thing about teaching is teaching a child how to read. When they unwrap this gift, their whole world changes. -Robin Lasseter, Omega Elementary's Teacher of the Year

My favorite thing about teaching is watching my students grow. There is no comparison to seeing a student's eyes light up when they have exceeded their own expectations. -Lauren Pearce, Sixth Street Academy's Teacher of the Year
