JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Great students often make great teachers. Our Teacher of the Week is inspiring her students to do great things.
At Stanton College Preparatory School, in Amanda Hohne's ninth-grade AP World History class, students are encouraged to ask questions, comment and give opinions on world events.
"I really love this class because we get to interact," said ninth-grader Ebony Love.
Hohne believes it's important her students know what's happened and what's happening in the world so they can make informed decisions in the future.
"Since these students are going to be voting in the next four years I really want them to be active. I really want them to go out and participate in their government and in their community."
Ebony Love nominated Hohne for Teacher of the Week because she cannot think of any teacher who has impacted her more. "I don't know what I want to be but I know I want to make a difference in the world because of Ms. Hohne."
Her students believe she's more than a great teacher. She's a great person.
"I can inspire them to become part of their world and to be active in the world around them," said Hohne.
Hohne has been teaching for eight years and said she decided to become a teacher because of all the great teachers she had when she was in school.
