Erin Shanahan is the 3rd/4th Grade teacher at the Ella Lewis School in Steuben. She came up with a fantastic program to increase attendance by having her students design dresses for her through a website she found called Picture This Clothing

She had 12 dresses made for $50 and she's wearing them to school! The students are overjoyed at seeing their creations come to life and wonder if today's the day that Ms. Shanahan will be wearing their dress!

Check out the interview !

Erin is a graduate of Sumner High School and it is so great to see her return to teach in her district and educate the next generation!
