High 5 for Teachers spotlights exceptional high school teachers

The Good Day Atlanta High 5 for Teachers contest, sponsored by Montlick & Associates, spotlights exceptional high school teachers in the Atlanta metro area. Five finalists have now been chosen to compete for the title of High 5 Teacher.

Each finalist will receive a $500 check from Montlick & Associates. A teacher profile piece was shot for each finalist and aired on Good Day Atlanta, and now viewers are asked to vote on their favorite finalist. We have included each profile below so that viewers can re-watch the pieces and cast their vote.

After the voting period ends on April 20, the finalist with the most votes will be named the High 5 Teacher, and his or her school will receive a $2,500 donation from Montlick & Associates.
