(KPLR) - Even during the summer months, KPLR’s Tools for Teachers sponsored by Weber Chevrolet continues.  And just before the school year starts up again, we want to tell you about a special teacher at Cleveland Junior Naval Academy which is a part of the St. Louis Public Schools.  What is unique about this teacher is that he was nominated by his principal!

When you get a nod from your boss, it’s a very special way to be recognized.   Dr. Susan Viviano is the principal at Cleveland Junior Naval Academy and she wrote in to tell us how Michael Baird’s high school English course is leaving a lasting impression on his students.

KPLR 11's Tools for Teachers program is presented by Weber Chevrolet.
