“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."

"Thanks to her I have met so many new friends and I have a new love for myself and school."

"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."

"Some people look for the light at the end of the tunnel, but Ms. Jensen is the constant and reassuring light that leads so many students!"

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!
