Top Teacher Week is a competition where the Live With Kelly audience will vote for one winner out of five finalists, all amazing teachers who are changing lives. The first finalist is Danielle Greco, a special education teacher from John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage, NY. The school’s principal said that Ms. Greco is a teacher who “goes above and beyond.” In a video segment, the audience got to know Ms. Greco and all the wonderful things that she has done for her students. All of her colleagues spoke very highly of her, and she described her work in attempting to make her special needs students feel loved and accepted. Ms. Greco organized a program where her students could partake in school sports through a special basketball team. All of her students applauded her, and in turn, she thanked them for making her an important part of their lives.
