Nimmers has been teaching in the Morehouse Parish school system for nearly 40 years, and was nominated by Malechi Mays.
Mays says Nimmers is his favorite teacher because she's a caring person.
"She loves us all, she fills us with hope, she makes us happy in the classroom, and she teaches us more than the state gives her," says Mays.
Nimmers says teaching her passion and can't see herself doing anything else.
"Each day I know I'm going to see my beautiful children and everyday is a happy day for us," says Nimmers.
