Erin McCracken was nominated by her student, Ronnie Figueroa.

Mrs. McCracken boosts the energy of her class through the passion she has for her craft of teaching Spanish. She provides different perspectives in all of her units that expand students' minds to the world around them.

"There hasn't been a day where I haven't seen Mrs. McCracken smile and inspire her class to not only educate themselves, but enjoy every step of the process by following things that fill our tanks with passion," Figueroa said. "As a Hispanic student born and raised in another country with many other Spanish teachers, I have to say that Mrs. McCracken is by far my favorite Spanish teacher of all time. She has set me on a path of self-development and self-fulfillment by helping me appreciate and love my own culture, and to be proud of where I am coming from. Mrs. McCracken is an amazing, loving human being, and I am eternally grateful to have been her student."
