Henrico’s Top Teachers

Teachers are a special breed. They are driven by a love of learning and a desire to impact young lives. They spend countless hours devising lesson plans, working individually with students before and after school and volunteering their time, seeking not recognition for their efforts but rather the smile of a student whose imagination has been captivated; a hug from a student who needs one in return; or the words of thanks from a student whose mind has grasped a challenging topic.

In the Henrico Citizen's first-annual 'Top Teachers' issue, we honor 20 of the finest educators in Henrico, as nominated by our readers. These are their stories.
