"Since [I received] the Milken Educator Award, students at my school have been much more vocal about their appreciation of teachers. Students from past years and students I never personally had in class constantly come up to me to say congratulations and that I deserve it. I've also had several students tell me that they want to be a teacher, just like me, when they grow up. It brings tears to my eyes every single time."
