Esmeralda Balvaneda was nominated by a student.

"My LifeChanger is Ms. Balvaneda," said the student. "She is always kind to us, even when we aren't on our best behavior. She always makes sure we have a chance to do our assignments, even if they aren't from her, and she makes all of us feel safe by allowing us to take time for ourselves. She is very understanding and is willing to joke around with us from time to time. Overall, she is a great teacher and probably the best teacher I've had so far."
