Sarah B. Wessling is Natl. Teacher of the Year

(CNN) – Headlines about schools in America too often involve budget cuts, kids dropping out, or teachers not doing their jobs. But there are educators out there, lots of them, doing an amazing job teaching your kids.

Sarah Brown Wessling is one of them. She teaches high school English in Johnston, Iowa. Tomorrow, President Obama will name her National Teacher of the Year. She joined us on Wednesday's American Morning.

    Congratulations, Ms. Wessling!!

    Teachers matter. What we do may not sprout and take root immediately. We know all students are different. I bet you "see" your students nurture, and encourage each to explore, wonder, appreciate the vast diversity of people, and use their talents to improve themselves and in the process they improve humanity.

    All the best,
    Yvonne Siu-Runyan
    President-Elect, National Council Teachers of English
