Education is our golden ticket to success, and the educators who spend their days teaching young minds have an amazing job. All of us have a special teacher from our days in the classroom that inspired us, pushed us to be great and reminded us that anything was possible. For me, I had so many wonderful educators who instilled in me a love of learning. The lessons from some of my favorite teachers were invaluable and allowed me to go on and push myself to be anything that I wanted to be. Every year I visit dozens of classrooms and read to students, I always take my prized copy of “Oh the Places You Will Go ” by Dr. Seuss. That book reminds us all to dream big, that’s what great teachers do as well. If you know of an outstanding teacher who deserves to be “Teacher of the Year” nominate them today! -Amber Philpott
