Each "My Why" episode uncovers the journey of one educator: a teacher or leader who has chosen to devote his or her life to the education profession. Each story is different, yet each is an exploration of motivation, purpose, and hope.

In this episode, we hear from Mrs. Melissa Miller, the 2019 Tennessee Teacher of the Year and an Elementary Teacher in the Franklin, Tennessee. Melissa is a National Board-Certified Teacher with 20 years of experience. She has the opportunity to inform education policy at the state level as a member of the Tennessee Commissioner of Education’s Teacher Advisory Council.
