Mickey Dunham teaches preschool at Highland Park and says there's no place she'd rather be.
The Madewell's nominated her because they say she's made a difference with two of their kids, Macadam and Chancely. "We just love her so much, my kids lives have been blessed to have started out the long road of education with her, all my kids love school and I believe it started right with her."
Fighting back the tears Dunham talked about how special it was to be recognized. " It's just amazing. It kind of makes you feel like everything that you do is worth it. I mean you know it every single day, but it helps to be recognized."
We're always looking for nominations. All we need to know is the teacher's name, where they teach and what makes them so special.
You can do that here on the website.
We honor our teacher of the week every Monday.
