The honor of New York State Teacher of the Year was awarded to a teacher in the Bronx. 

Alhassan Susso, a teacher at the International Community High School, sat down with Pat Kiernan to talk about his role as an educator. 

Susso says his one piece of advice to teachers is that it doesn't matter what's in the lesson plan or how knowledgable you are, if your students don't know how much they mean to you.
