Classroom Stars Washington FAMILY Recognizes 5 Teachers of the Year

It’s that time of year again to celebrate teachers, our everyday heroes. It is not an exaggeration to say that a great teacher can empower and change a student’s life, in and out of the classroom.
That’s why Washington Family is honoring DMV-area teachers with our third annual Teachers of the Year issue.

We asked our community readers to nominate an exemplary and influential local teacher to be recognized for this honor. After a handful of nominations, we identified five notable teachers to be featured in this issue. With an array of backgrounds and specialties, each of our winners embodies the compassion, selflessness and dedication that make for a great educator.

We are excited to share their journeys with you. Meet our Teachers of the Year!
