So many of us have had great teachers – those that have inspired and encouraged us, and changed our lives for the better. Their influence on us extends beyond the classroom and into our community, enriching our whole province.

Here are some stories from people whose lives have been changed by their teachers. If you have a story you’d like to share about a special school teacher, write it or add a video on our share your story page. We’ll put it in our gallery celebrating the amazing educators we have in Newfoundland and Labrador.
