JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- From an early age, teaching came naturally to Erin Cushnir.
"I've always had a passion for kids," Cushnir said. "I knew from a pretty early age I wanted to do something for kids."
Cushnir loves finding new ways to teach her first graders at Loretto Elementary.
And her students remember her for that passion.
"She does such great things," said Benjamin Williams, who nominated Cushnir. "Like if you don't understand it, she'll walk you right through it."
Williams, who is now in fifth grade, still remembers the impact from his first grade teacher.
"She was such an excellent teacher in first grade and me and my mom always think of how, such a great a great job she did teaching us," Williams said.
For Cushnir, knowing her students remember her is exciting. "I'm looking forward to the day when I have high schoolers coming back!"
