Congratulations to LaShanda J., our Stellar Educator of the Week! 

LaShanda was nominated by one of her colleagues, who wrote about the impact LaShanda has made on her students:

 LaShanda has a way to communicate and engage middle school students that is just plain special. She challenges students to learn in different ways! She challenges students that have found school easy and makes them work harder than they ever had.  In addition to being a stellar classroom teacher, LaShanda sponsors various after-school activities, like Asian Culture Club and Student Council.

Teachers like LaShanda who go above and beyond for their students and outside the classroom are the kind of educators that exemplify our profession.  Thanks to LaShanda for being such a great example for her colleagues and our readers!

We are inspired by you, LaShanda, and we think YOU are a Stellar Educator!
