In introducing his teacher, who later that evening would be named Baltimore County Public Schools 2017-18 Teacher of the Year, Troy Taylor described Rebecca Eig as "E – encouraging, I – innovative, and G – genuine," and said that she is one of the reasons he loves learning.

BCPS Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance named Eig, a Grade 2 teacher at Owings Mills Elementary School, as Baltimore County Teacher of the Year. The awards ceremony was held yesterday evening at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson.

“Rebecca Eig is exactly the kind of teacher every parent wants for his or her child," Dr. Dance said. “The depth of her caring for each student comes through in every interaction. She demonstrates tremendous respect for the abilities of her students and that respect leads her to challenge them, listen to them, and support them in accelerating their learning. She is an outstanding representative of the caliber of teachers you can find in every school across this county."
