A select group of America's teachers are being honored by their toughest critics - their former students - in the sixth edition of "Who's Who Among America's Teachers 2000."

All of the approximately 114,000 teachers being honored were selected by their former students who themselves are currently listed in "Who's Who Among American High School Students," or "The National Dean's List," publications which recognize the nation's top high school and college students respectively.

"there is no greater honor teachers can receive than to be recognized by former students for their excellence and dedication," said Paul Krouse, publisher of the list. "In this publication, we clearly have the best teachers in America selected by the best students."

The students were requested to nominate the one teacher from their entire academic career who made a difference in their lives by helping to shape their values, inspiring interest in a particular subject and/or challenging them to strive for excellence.

Many of the students commented about the enthusiasm and knowledge their teachers demonstrated in the classroom, and many praised their teachers for their ability to relate to youngsters on a personal as well as a professional level.
