Sharon Vollin was nominated by her friend, Nicole Mulazim.

Mrs. Vollin, also known as "Mrs.V," is a celebrity in her school! When she asks her students how they're doing, they know she genuinely wants to know how they're doing, both in and out of school. She is a community activist for the children. She teaches them to learn to be lifelong readers and learners. Mrs. V opens the world to her students, giving them the opportunity to touch the world by taking them to Japan, Europe, and soon to Cuba.

"The fundraisers she coordinates to make these trips happen is why she is changing lives, and why I see her as a LifeChanger. She is one of those teachers who not only talks about change, but walks with the students in the march to make the change," said Mulazim.
