Today is teachers' appreciation day.
Third grade teacher Tammi Dayley teaches at Stoddard Elementary. This year marks her 32nd year teaching there.
Dayley started teaching at Stoddard Elementary in January 1986 when she took the place of a teacher who left for maternity leave. She has taught first grade, Title 1 and third grade.
"I love the kids," said Dayley. "I love to see them progress.
"Third graders are like little sponges and they still really like their teacher," she said.
