A teacher who puts the wellbeing of her students first. My son is epileptic who was having seizures during class. She made it a priority for his fellow classmates to embrace his condition and all willing to help at any moment. She made them feel proud that they were now 'experienced' in knowing what to do and not feel scared during his episodes and how valuable it was that they will know what to do if this every happens again in their lifetime. ALL his classmates looked after my son. These life lessons are priceless and teacher like her make it happen. She's one of a kind.
