“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child ‘get it’! Kids don’t remember their favorite test, policy, or bad day. Students remember teachers and moments you create with their peers. No other profession has the power to change the world like education.”- Noraa RanseyKentucky Teacher and GoTeachKY Ambassador
