"Robert Frost once said, 'I am not an educator, but an awakener.' When I walk into my classroom each morning, it is my goal to awaken something new in my students so that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to. Winning [the Milken Award] has awakened something in me that I never knew existed. It has pushed me to continue learning to become an even better awakener for my students. I look forward to continuing to grow and see where and what I'm led to do next."
Lindsay Murray (VA '16) Teacher
