Student Nomination Story

Donah Callaway is by far one of the best teachers anyone could ask for. She not only was a teacher to me she was an inspiration. She helped me through a very difficult time in my life and I honestly couldn’t thank her enough. Not only did Donah teach me the material I needed to know it school, she went way beyond and thought me many life lessons as well that I continue to use every single day. I moved out of my house when I was just 16 years old and didn’t have many people to rely on, but I knew I always had her. She touched my heart every single day by showing me constantly how much she cared about me and the other students. Donah was so committed to making a difference is a student's life even if it was just a little bit at a time. She showed me that everyone has someone who they can rely upon and count on to be there for you no matter what struggles life three at you. The day to day struggle of just waking up and going to school honestly would’ve been so much more difficult if it wasn’t for her. If one teacher deserves to be nominated as the greatest teacher ever I don’t have a single doubt that it’s her. She’s by far the most incredible, caring, loving and compassionate person I have had such the great pleasure of knowing and I just hope she knows that! Once again I couldn’t thank her enough for everything she has done for me.
