Teachers Who’ve Inspired Us

This spring, we asked parents and students to tell us about the teachers who are stars in their community. You didn’t just tell us about incredible educators going the extra mile for students – you flooded us with more than 750 nominations! We whittled down that incredible list to surprise five finalists with $1000 and the news.

AND THE WINNER IS HOLLY GREFE!

Our grand prize winner received a trip for two, anywhere in the world.
