A+ Teacher Initiative
Bay News 9 is starting a new initiative in January called A+ Teachers.

They are asking students or their parents to nominate amazing teachers who go out of their way every day to ensure student success.

Bay News 9 will pick a teacher from the nominees and come out to your school to visit their classroom. They will do a story on what makes the teacher an awesome educator.

Students (or their parents) should send an email to  and explain what makes their teacher A+.
