Vickie Sullivan Nominated Her Daughter Katie Sullivan


Ms. Sullivan Teachers Science/Chemistry At Walnut Hills High School 8th-12th

We talked to Vickie about her daughter Katie.

"Katie is an amazing teacher that makes learning Science/Chemistry fun and interactive for her students. 
She is selfless when it comes to her students, she goes above and beyond not only during school hours but 
countless hours she spends creating Science videos on You Tube to enhance her lessons. 
During this very unpredictable school year, Katie reaches out to her students and parents to keep them 
informed about what is going on in class but also makes herself available for virtual tutoring for her students 
so they can get the extra help they need. She has had numerous Zoom meetings with parents to let them know 
how their kids are doing in class but also reach out to them to see if she can assist them with anything she can 
do to help them during these very unsure times. During the  normal school year Katie assist with 
the Outdoor Adventure Club, The Backpacking Club, Science Fair Chairperson and helps coach the Girls Fastpitch Team.
 All the while getting her Maters Degree from Bowling Green State in Technology 
so she can further help her students! Thank You for having this contest so some of the Awesome Teachers we 
have can see how much they are really loved and appreciated."

Jensen Linder Nominated Mary Ella Rorer


Ms. Rorer teaches at 9th district Elementary in Covington K-5 MSD

“Mary Ella goes beyond and above for her students. She is constantly staying late and creating new ideas for her students to achieve their full potential. Mary Ella is an extremely hard worker and has always been dedicated to both the school and her students. Mary Ella also spends a lot of time outside of school in different extra curricular activities. Not only is she a JV basketball coach but she also helped create a diversity club that gave students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to play varsity sports. In her first season she even won state in unified bowling. Mary Ella honestly is the one teacher that comes to mind as soon as I think of this”
