The PTA nominated McCuiston saying she puts 110 percent into everything she does.

"Teachers can get busy with their students and classrooms and may not think that the PTA wants their help. But not this teacher!  She consistently reaches out to the leaders of her parent group and encourages them to continue advocating for the students and families within their school community," they said.
