Congratulations to Maribeth Smith, a Washington State History teacher at Carmichael Middle School in Richland. She wins $100 to the Teacher’s World store and a 60-minute massage from Myers Therapeutic Massage.

Here's Danielle Giles' submission about Ms. Smith:

She is a very well-rounded teacher who not only teaches to every type of learning style but also goes out of her way to make sure every student is understanding the materials. She has been a teacher there forever -- she was my teacher when I was only 11. I'm 24 years old now and I still remember her as the best teacher I ever had!
