VOTE NOW: One of these 79 people will be crowned top teacher

THE saying " a good childhood lasts a lifetime" can be applied as easily to teachers.

A teacher's dedication will last a lifetime, and from the response of readers when The Gympie Times asked for nominations for the region's best teacher on social media this week, Gympie parents are grateful for the passion of our educators.

Reader Rebecca Louise Pickett praised the role that she believed so many fulfilled tirelessly.

"All teachers are amazing- giving so much of themselves with the hours they put in (many of them off the clock) the effort and energy needed to wrangle an entire classroom of children is absolutely miraculous, and terrifying to so many people- but they all do it day in day out," she wrote.

"Much of the time without the praise or recognition they deserve too. They often go without lunch and work on the holidays and weekends.

"They pay for so much out of their own pockets, and make a difference to each child.

"They see the children more than the children are at home, so they are the example the children have of adults, outside of their family for so many children, and this shapes children's lives."

Mel Clift wrote of the incredible influence Gympie teachers had on her son.

"To all the teachers who have influenced my son since he began his educational journey.

"We have been blessed with only the best, and you've all come into his life to support him at exactly the perfect time in his growth. Thanks to you, I think he's going to become an incredible man."

Teacher Matt Hudson took the chance to acknowledge his colleagues.

"All Gympie primary HPE teachers in town go above and beyond with coaching and managing in their own time: Shereene Moy, Andrew Martin, Anthony Schofield, Chloe Kraak, Joe Laffey, Chantelle Sprig, Yasmin Sauer, Daniel Green, Guy Littler, Jordan Boyd, Shelley Davies.

Below are the 79 finalists (in no particular order) and why you think they deserve to be recognised.

To help crown the Gympie region's top teacher - vote in the poll online below and we will announce the winner next week.

Voting closes tomorrow at midnight on Sunday (September 15) and the winner will be announced on Monday.
