Influential Teacher Celebration

On Sunday, September 16, former and current St. Paul teachers were honored at Montgomery Bell Academy by seventh-grade students for the annual Influential Teacher Celebration. 

Upon entry into seventh grade, MBA students are asked to write an essay about their most influential teacher. These teachers are invited to the Annual Influential Teacher Celebration in their honor, and a book is dedicated to them and placed in MBA’s library. Each nominated teacher receives an award, and a letter from the student that nominated them. Pictured are the following:
