Special teachers can and do make a difference every day in the lives of children and families. To salute those who devote themselves to the teaching profession, News10 and California State University, Sacramento's College of Education have joined forces in creating a monthly profile of an exemplary educator.

Every month, News10 asks viewers to nominate a teacher in their community who is making a difference in students' lives. These special teachers are showcased every second Tuesday of the month in News10 at 5 p.m.

Teacher of the Month allows News10 to hear directly from viewers about the inspiring lessons children are learning in and outside of the classroom from educators who are passionate about their work.

News10 is honored to be invited into our local classrooms to see the miracle of learning, shape our future.
