posted by: Melissa | November 04, 2015, 05:29 pm

Alabama State Teacher of the Year and finalist for National Teacher of the Year, Ann Marie Corgill resigned from teaching after 21 years this week. By all accounts, Ms. Corgill was an excellent teacher.  She was a National Board Certified Teacher.  Her students, colleagues, and principal all spoke well of her.  She was a mentor to other teachers and a published author.  Moreover, there’s every indication that she loved her students and that she loved her job.  What could possibly drive such a talent out of the system?

Support Vergara v. California
