Noreen Yasay is a second-grade teacher at Saint Ann School in Nashville.

Peers say the way she engages students daily is amazing. She takes difficult concepts like word problems, grammar, or three-digit addition, and turns them into activities.

Students have fun through those activities and don’t realize they’re learning.

So we salute Noreen Yasay as our News 2 Educator of the Week.
