What a school year! The kids will be out of class in just a few weeks, which means our 'Teacher of the Week' award is taking a summer vacation of its own! We named our final winning teacher for the 2018-2019 school year this morning, so that brings our total to 36 amazing teachers over the last 9 months. Thank you SO, SO much to everyone who nominated a teacher this year. We wish we could choose them all, but unfortunately, we just don't have enough prizes! There's always next year, though!
