Teachers are some of the most important members of our society. They educate and shape the minds of our children (and us) and help us better ourselves. We here at Townsquare Media Twin Falls think they deserve more credit.

That's why we asked you to name the Magic Valley Teacher of the Year. The nominations were numerous and voting was brisk, but one educator came out on top.

Jennifer Zamora of Popplewell Elementary. 2014 Magic Valley Teacher of the Year!

30.69% of the votes went to Jennifer Zamora of Popplewell Elementary! Here's why one of her students felt she should be the Magic Valley Teacher of the Year:

A great teacher. Cares about the kids and loves teaching. An inspiration to all.

As our 2014 Magic Valley Teacher of the Year, Jennifer Zamora wins an Samsung Galaxy Tab to use in the classroom, or anyway she likes, and we'll make a $500 donation to Popplewell Elementary.

Congratulations to all the Top 10 Teachers and everyone nominated to be the Magic Valley Teacher of the Year!
