Hi La Sandra,

Mrs. Graham seems like a great teacher and we encourage you to nominate her here so she can be included in the formal review process:

We have a great team of people from Symetra, the Falcons and SunTrust Bank who review and select the Heroes.

Thanks for sharing!

Mrs. Muriel Y. Graham, Language Arts teacher at Sylvan Hills Middle School is an exemplary teacher. She makes learning applicable to today’s standards and events; she makes learning fun and exciting by encouraging her students to want to learn and understand the concepts that she teaches. Her students learn the skills and concepts with knowing what it takes to take tests and pass them; she is just that good. She loves her job and loves to teach, Teaching is truly her calling and she does it with so much compassion and dedication. Mrs. Graham is truly a heroine to the teaching profession and I recommend her highly for this honor.
