Constellation Schools: Parma Community High
Parma, Ohio

Nominated by: Megan Michaels
"It took less than 15 minutes of being in his classroom to realize he was the best teacher I have encountered in my 13 years of schooling...I have never seen a teacher so involved and interested in what their students had to say, it does not matter what we do say, and he always listens and does it passionately... Mr. Gainer has given me something no other teacher has and that is the motivation to be happy doing what I choose to do in life no matter what."
