Teacher of the year is designed to honor and celebrate a teacher who has done an exceptional job of reaching out to their students and who has made an impact in their school or community. This designation is considered to be a source of pride amongst teachers and faculty members. Even so, just being named Teacher of the Year does not mean you are guaranteed to get that title all year.

She worked hard, kids adored her, and was desgnated as Teacher of the Year for the 2012-2013 school year. Despite holding that honor for the upcoming school year, Michelle won't be working at the elementary school anymore. Due to budget cuts, Michelle was let go. The school insists that the way they decide the cuts is based on seniority and has nothing to do with awards.
