This week’s Thank a Teacher celebration is a family affair. Teacher Laura Sheedy calls her first grade students at Manatee Elementary her school family. And Laura’s daughters have been so inspired by their mom’s commitment and dedication to help kids, they’ve also decided to pursue a career inside the classroom. Both daughters attended their mom’s Thank a Teacher celebration at Manatee Elementary. Laura will receive a $250 check from HCA Florida Healthcare for her outstanding achievements as an educator.
