Tameiya Taylor says she nominated Lamartinere because no one else is more deserving.
"I nominated her because she helps me with all my work and helps me pass," says Taylor.
Lamartinere says it's nice to rewarded for her hard work, but says the real payoff is in the classroom.
"When children succeed, when you see them grow and when you see them become better readers," says Lamartinere.
