Teachers have the power to impact and change the WORLD! They do so easily and fearlessly every day, and truly make a difference in the life of so many of our students daily. In appreciation of the teachers that selflessly devote themselves to the profession, The Vine has partnered with WOW! Smiles for The Teacher Feature, to highlight and award a teacher every month! We will recognize and celebrate teachers based on their contributions to the school, excellence in the classroom, leadership, community involvement, and any other positive criteria. Winning teachers will be invited to come on-air with Robin on the Afternoon Mix, to talk about what’s happening in their classroom.

Winning teachers will be entered into a drawing to win an opportunity to award a student of their choice who they believe is worthy and deserving of a new SMILE! Courtesy of generous sponsors WOW! Smiles braces. 1 FREE case of braces to award their student (VALUED AT $7K!). AND as an extra special offer, every winning teacher is provided a voucher for $600 OFF BRACES for all STUDENTS in the teachers homeroom class to share the joy and love of a new smile with all! *
