Rep. Bill Otto speaks about why Teacher Words Matter

Missouri NEA's Teacher Words Matter Contest is drawing to a close.  

MNEA will soon announce ten more winners from the hundreds of stories that were submitted. The winners submitted heartwarming, inspirational essays about how teachers, counselors and education support people positively influenced them while they were students. The winners will be treated to tickets at the high school state basketball championships at Mizzou Arena in Columbia March 18, 2016. During halftime, MNEA President Charles E. Smith will present each of the ten winners with a check for $500. 


Rep. Bill Otto tells his story how a teacher helped turn his life around.
