Authentic connections with teachers can make all the difference when it comes to students succeeding in the classroom and in life. Nicole Rivers, Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) 2021 Teacher of the Year, understands this well.
 
From creative assignments requiring students to think outside of the box, to starting a poetry club to give students a voice, Rivers goes above and beyond to form authentic connections while ensuring her students’ education transcends the classroom.
 
“My job as an educator is not to just get what I deem as valuable information into the minds of my students,” Rivers wrote in her TOY nomination portfolio. “It is not just to show students how the words of others impact them, but how to effectively and responsibly use their words to change the world around them. So, when I see students from every level of capability do so, I feel I have done what I have been called to do: teach.”
