Teachers have taken a lot of hits over the past year.
We think it is time to get back to giving the best of them the credit they deserve.
Starting in August, the Roane County News, in partnership with Jerry Duncan Ford, is starting a new educator of the month feature.
We need your help, though.
We are looking for people to tell us — in 150 words or less — why a particular Roane County teacher stands out among their peers.
Include the teacher’s name, educational institution and, if you have it, contact information.
