    A media specialist with 30 years of experience as an educator. She believes that a great teacher is first and foremost a lifelong learner.

    “They are engaged in the world and are excited to discover and explore new ideas. They welcome new challenges and demonstrate to their students that we are all on a journey of inquiry,” said Rauth. “They see the role of the teacher not as one whose job it is to fill young minds, but instead to open new doors to what is possible and give their students the emotional, social and intellectual tools to make the journey in to learning.”
