The Great American Teach-Off

GOOD is hosting the Great American Teach-Off.
Ten inspiring teachers are competing for one $10,000 CLASSROOM GRANT and it's up to you to decide who will win! From October 3 through October 30, we'll upload a new video every Monday at 9AM (PST) from the finalists. Come back here each week to watch teachers responding to questions about education, then vote for your favorite educator to advance.

Yes, I do have a favorite but the most importantly we need your vote.
My favorite:
Pernille Ripp
Grade 5 at West Middleton Elementary School, Middleton, WI
Pernille Ripp is a fifth grade teacher in Middleton, Wisconsin. Passionate about having students find their voice, she gets to have the best job in the world. She blogs fervently about education at www.mrspripp.blogspot.com.
Help Pernille win $10,000 for her school and classroom! Vote today and each day until Oct. 30, 2011
