Shari Gateley, Oklahoma Teacher of the Year
Shari Gateley is the 2017/2018 Teacher of the Year in Oklahoma. This is no ordinary task. Oklahoma is in the midst of a state emergency concerning education. Some districts are shifting to 4 day weeks while the state continues to struggle. Being a teacher in Oklahoma means fighting for your students in the classroom and on Capitol Hill. Shari reminds us why voting means everything.
