Date of Award: Jan. 28, 2015

Seeing her students succeed is what the "gift" of teaching is all about for first-grade teacher Maggie Hawk. As a child, Maggie struggled with dyslexia and reading, but these challenges have only made her a stronger instructor who is determined to help her students, including many with academic and behavioral difficulties, reach their full potential.
