"Why I Teach Today" - Mrs. Butters & Miss Acevedo

Mrs. Butters has been teaching at Grand Island Senior High for 13 years. While AP English is her class, empowering students is her passion.

One of those students was Christy Acevedo. Miss Acevedo has been teaching Kindergarten at West Lawn Elementary for two years. And, as she says, wouldn't have even dreamed about going to college if it weren't for the influence of Mrs. Butters.

We wanted to share their story. Along the way, Mrs. Butters got to hear directly from Miss Acevedo and see it all come full-circle.

Our final episode of our video series, "Why I Teach Today".

Because teachers change lives.
