Top Notch Teacher is a unique program that focuses on teachers and their efforts in and out of the classroom. These are teachers that have made an impact on someone’s life.

News 8 invites you to nominate a teacher that you feel goes above and beyond!  Each month News 8 will choose a teacher from the submissions.  Each month (except for September) we’ll come to their classroom and produce a story on that teacher that will air on News 8 at 6 on the first Monday of the month they are chosen. The story will repeat on Tuesday's News 8 This Morning. Their story will also be featured here, on our Top Notch Teacher webpage.

The Top Notch Teacher also gets the opportunity to drive a special car from Honda Motorwerks for a month. The car has a large Top Notch Teacher logo on the side.

Once a year, WKBT-TV News 8 will host a banquet honoring the Top Notch teachers from the previous school year.
