Teachers make an impact every day. From big moments that shift the trajectory of a person's life to small things teachers do to make students feel safe, appreciated, and ready to learn. In order to celebrate these influential teachers and make their impact known, we have launched the Because of a Teacher campaign to share stories that showcase how teachers make a difference in the lives of their students.
While most teachers would agree that their work is rewarding, it is not without its challenges, and a number of factors have caused a teacher shortage across the nation. We hope the Because of a Teacher campaign will ensure current teachers feel valued for their tireless work and that young people will be inspired to become the great teachers of tomorrow.
Watch the videos below to see how educators have altered the course of several distinguished Wyomingites lives and helped build them into the people they are today. We hope you are moved to submit a short video celebrating the influential teacher in your life.
