“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.”

"Mr. Mahoney believed in my abilities even when I doubted myself."

"Ella siempre dice que nosotros podemos hacelo y que podemos hacer todo nos proponemos en la vida."

She always pushed me to try my best, and she did this because she saw my potential. If it wasn’t for a teacher like her, I would never have become an honor roll student. I have been ever since I met her.

"I have often heard people say — there was that ONE teacher who saw something in me and made a difference. Mrs. Nichols is "that one" for Jeremiah."

The Honor Roll recognizes every teacher nominated for the Honored National Teaching Award.
Every nomination matters: Research shows that teachers who see the impact
they have on students’ lives stay engaged and inspired, and they continue teaching longer.

Congratulations to all of our exceptional nominees!
