      wishbone, what a bummer for you to not see the available good that can come from recognizing innovative teachers in America. I think programs like GATO are fabulous for putting quality teaching on a platform to model, further, and appreciate the potential of teaching. Hopefully it will be a catalyst to support our teachers, students, parents and classrooms. Madeleine is a terrific teacher - I hope she does well!

        Agreed. It's great that and The Great American Teach-Off elevate teachers like these that wouldn't normally get the limelight just do to the lack of resources available to them.
