Tammy Childs' nominator would like to remain anonymous.

Ms. Childs changes lives every day. She works with students who have unique challenges, such as limited speech or mobility, serious illnesses, seizures, etc. Her students are loved for their differences, celebrated for their uniqueness, and provided the best possible care and support from a dedicated team that loves them unconditionally.

Ms. Childs moves mountains for her kids. She visits them in the hospital or at home when they are too sick to be at school. She provides respite for tired parents who need a few minutes away from a bedside. Every child deserves a champion, and Ms. Childs is that champion.

"The building I'm referencing is filled with LifeChangers who make a difference every day for kids," said her nominator. "They make a difference, leading by example and getting the job done under sometimes the most heart-wrenching circumstances. In a building filled with great educators, Tammy will always be one of the best of the best. She is an inspiration, a role model, and a LifeChanger."

Tammy truly believes that her students can learn even with severe disabilities. She finds ways to help them to learn. She is the best teacher I know. She is compassionate, caring and loving. Her students know they are loved unconditionally when they enter her classroom. She is my hero.
