You've nominated, you've voted, you've waited, and at last, it's time for you to know who won April's Teacher Tuesday award!

In spite of the difficulties of their roles, our teachers still find inspiration and joy with their students, often going above and beyond to help Northern Colorado's kids feel comfortable, safe, and encouraged. Corrine Yahn is one such teacher, and this month, she's getting recognized as March's Teacher Tuesday winner.

Nominated by her principal, Jeff Cranson, Ms. Yahn is a beloved environmental science teacher at Greeley West High School whose favorite part of teaching watching her students connect their lessons to their communities. An avid learner and world-traveler who recently chaperoned her students on a trip to Iceland, Yahn received over 1,800 votes during the contest, making her April's Teacher Tuesday winner. When it came to her nomination, Cranson has described Yahn as

an innovative teacher that cares deeply about her students! She has been a leader in our building over the past few years dealing with COVID protocols by not only switching many of her lessons to online platforms but enhancing them by exploring new programs to give students an engaging experience even when they were remote.

Yahn took home a ton of outstanding prizes for all of her efforts this school year, and those prizes include:

  • $100 food delivery voucher from Nosh NoCo
  • 1 free $50 gift card to Breeze Thru Car Wash
  • $500 to her school

Congratulations to Ms. Yahn!

For another, there's always something to do. And finally, according to a recent list by SafeWise, we've also got a long list of vibrant, safe cities to reside in. Check out the list below to see the top ten safest cities in Colorado in 2020.
