Tanager Stanhope teaches special education at Cascade Elementary. This is from Dejah Felton's submission note:

Tanager is a fantastic woman. She's calm and understanding and works with kids with Autism of any spectrum. My son has Aspergers and has been having a hard time in school. He was transferred to her class and is doing much better. She had kids from kindergarten to 5th grade and gives each one the time they need. I'm amazed at her patience. She's perky and fun and the kids love her."

Each month we're picking a teacher to win $100 to the Teacher's World store and a 60-minute massage from Myers Therapeutic Massage.

Nominate your favorite teacher, tell us a little about them, and because all teachers are deserving, we'll randomly select one each month to be the winner.
