Helping a Teacher Smile Confidently!
We had over 10,000 votes for our Top 10 teachers during our voting period. We’ve tallied the votes and determined the recipient of our 2022 Smiles For Teachers campaign to determine who will receive a complimentary Invisalign® or braces treatment.
Our 2022 Smiles For Teachers recipient is Ashley, a first grade teacher at Ezra Millard Elementary in Omaha. In her application, she wrote about how she has noticed her teeth getting more crooked over the last few years, but has known they were bad since she was a child. As a child, she was not self-conscious about her smile, and now she will sometimes find herself deleting or not sharing pictures because of her teeth. Ashley also wrote about how she tries to instill in her students how unique they are and that they each have their own qualities that make them who they are. She even used her application for the Smiles For Teachers program as a teaching opportunity.
When asked why she became a teacher and what keeps her coming back, she wrote, “I love being a consistent person in students' lives that they know they can always count on me being there for them to support, help, and cheer them on in all that they do.”
We hope that Ashley’s smile will bring her the self-confidence needed as she continues to teach our community’s next generation.
