Jodie Gracey was nominated anonymously.

Ms. Gracey goes above and beyond her classroom duties to make sure each student is successful. She works with students with severe impairments, helping them with life-changing skills, independence, advocacy, and social skills. She not only works in a classroom, but also provides after school care and respite for students and their families. Ms. Gracey believes learning does not stop in the classroom. She also spends countless hours securing donations for the students.

"With the right equipment, the students have more access to their environment," said her nominator. "Jodie has been known to travel across the state to pick up equipment and donations to help her students! She believes all kids can!"
