Every single day of this Rockford, Illinois teacher's 31-year career has been at the same school and teaching the same grade. She has blessed thousands of families.

Every human being on this earth has a purpose, the difference is when it's discovered. This 3rd-grade teacher knew her purpose when she was just four years old. It's just one small part of this teacher's incredible story. A story that you can listen to her share below.

Congratulations to Kimber Malmberg from Washington Elementary School in Rockford

Amy Booker nominated Kimber, she writes,

This teacher was my now 13-year-old's 3rd-grade teacher when we first moved here from Madison! Going through a divorce and trying to get help for my son to be placed in a school for autism was extremely difficult for me as a single mom but she foughtto get help for us . My son was finally placed at Easter Seals Academy because she never gave up!! This teacher not only was an absolutely amazing 3rd grade teacher to my son but then 3 years later she was my youngest son’s teacher as well!! Michael is now in 8th grade and Marco now in 5th grade and Kimber is STILL very much a part of not only their lives but mine as well!! THANK YOU KIMBER FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT ❤
