This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, a time to show gratitude for the hard work of educators across the country. From kindergarten reading circles to high school science labs, more than 100,000 teachers work with students in North Carolina each day. This year, we asked teachers to nominate their colleagues so we could share the stories of their compassion, commitment, and dedication. To nominate a teacher for recognition, please complete the short survey below. Teachers, thank you for all you do for our students and our state.

Listen to Kirsten Russ, West Forsyth High School civics and human geography teacher, explain the differences she has noticed in her students over her years of teaching and how she embraces daily change.

Note: Kirsten Russ was nominated by fellow educator Stuart Egan.
