Stacie Starr was nominated by a grateful parent:

“Please consider Stacie Starr for your contest. She is the hardest working, most selfless woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing,” Verlotti wrote to close out the letter that detailed her son’s struggles after a diagnosis at age 3 of Asperger syndrome and how it affected his school life.

Starr was already known within the district as a top teacher. She started a boys group and personally mentored a group of at-risk boys. She said the highlight of her career was “the moment – watching those young men who started out as a group of at-risk boys walk across the stage to finish their high school careers with diplomas in hand – that let her know her job as a teacher had purpose.”
