“Good Afternoon Viera High School Parents
Barnes & Noble is conducting their annual My Favorite Teacher Contest. This contest provides your student the opportunity to recognize one of their teachers for their dedication and passion for their subject. Students are asked to write an essay explaining how that teacher influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them. Students can find more information on this contest by visiting the Barnes & Noble site: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/my-favorite-teacher/379002376/
