Whether you graduated last week or 30 years ago, chances are that there was a standout teacher at some point in your school career. Perhaps they had a unique teaching style. Maybe they took extra time or showed you special kindness. Or, they may have seen the potential in you earlier than anyone else. So on this program we celebrate and appreciate those educators who have made us all better people as a result of their work. We’re joined by special guests Anchorage School District Superintendent, Carol Comeau, and two previous Alaska Teachers of the Year, Lorrie Heagy and Patricia Truman.
PLUS, a report on the changing status of modern educators; young people tell us which teacher made the biggest impact in their lives; and a new Power of One highlights a dedicated Alaskan teacher who turned her town’s drug bust into a way to empower her students to grow healthy food.
