Lina Older was nominated by a parent who wishes to remain anonymous.

The nominator's child struggled for a period of time because of health problems and some behavioral issues. Ms. Older, who was a new teacher at the time, worked together with the nominator to come up with a plan that worked for him in the classroom.

"Once my child saw that we all were on the same page, everything came together for him." the nominator said. "Ms. Older gave my son a buddy to work with and they helped each another. By helping my son, she gave him the willpower that he needed to want to go to school and want to learn. And by doing that, he was able to help another kid in the classroom."

Ms. Older is a positive influence on the nominator's child and has been a great support for him and the other students in her class.

"I am so grateful that she decided to come join the Valhalla team and have a positive influence on all the kids and adults in our school," the nominator said.
