Vote online Friday for Jarrettsville kindergarten teacher to win “Live with Regis and Kelly” Top Teacher Week competition


Vote online this Friday to help North Bend Elementary School kindergarten teacher Susan Lynn win a new 2011 Ford Mustang and a $20,000 gift card to Staples in the “Live with Regis and Kelly” show’s Top Teacher Week Competition. Lynn was nominated for the chance to compete against four other teachers selected from across the country by her school’s PTA president, Amy Miller. In her nomination letter, Miller wrote about how her son enjoyed having Lynn as a teacher so much that when school let out for the summer, he worried that she might be sad that she no longer got to see her students every day.

“I think success in school depends on a lot of different factors-but the one factor supersedes all others, is the connection with your teachers,” Miller wrote. “For someone to make a connection with a fidgety five year old in a fifteen minute discussion is amazing. You want students to have that type of connection with their teachers that makes them want to do well, to please them. Students spend more time with their teachers than their family during the school year.”
