Mix 93-1 and Half Price Books are proud to recognize outstanding teachers from our East Texas classrooms!

This week's recipient is Rochelle Johnson, a 10th & 11th grade English teacher at Gilmer High School.

Ms. Johnson was nominated by a former student who was grateful for the impact that she made on their life.

Mrs. Johnsons should receive this award because she is not only a phenomenal teacher, but a phenomenal person. This past year, I was under an immense amount of pressure and stress and she was the first person to recognize that. Not only did she stop the problem, but she made sure each and every day that I was okay. She helped me learn to not only cope with the stress, but better manage my time and energy. She showed me that there is so much more to life than making all As. She not only teaches lessons about English, but about the true value of heart & how far kindness can take you in life. Mrs. Johnson showed me that despite it seeming like the world was against me, she was on my side no matter the circumstance. This woman devotes her life to bettering the students inside and outside the classroom. She is not only one of the best teachers I have ever had, but one of the best friends I have ever had too. I would not be the person I am today if Mrs. Johnson had not left the impact on my life that she did."

Mix 93-1 and Half Price Books are honored to name Ms. Johnson of Gilmer High School as the Mix 93-1 Teacher Of The Week!
