Marisa Alanis Saldaña was nominated anonymously. 

"Mrs. Saldaña treats her students like they were to be her own children. I've never had a teacher treat me so well and be so patient with me. She taught me how to read, even though I was in fifth grade," said her nominator. "My other teachers kept passing me grades without teaching me how to read or write, but Mrs. Saldaña, would tutor me and pull me into small groups every day until I learned. I passed the Reading STAAR because of her. I will always be grateful and will always remember her."
