In the past few weeks, there has been a push across the country to replace President Jackson with an influential female on the twenty dollar bill. Popular candidates are Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Harriet Tubman. Although these women are all beyond qualified to have their faces graced upon our country’s currency, The Voice thinks that there are some other women who fit the criteria.

1. First up, Ms. Goldau. Not only is she awesome, but she teaches the most abstruse subject in the world, and that deserves some recognition. By helping kids understand what differential equations and Taylor polynomials are, this woman is a saint and is definitely a good candidate to be the woman that changes the face of the United States currency (literally). Also we think “In Math We Trust” really has a nice ring to it.

2. Next up is Señora Iorgulescu. She’s got great hair from growing up in the Windy City and always rocks the polka dots. Not only is she super cool because she learned a second language later in life, but she also has mad cooking skills from being one of the Cooking Club moderators. Also, who doesn’t love a lady that loves matte?

3. Another Presentation faculty member that clearly fulfills the criteria is Ms. Ford. Let’s be honest, Ms. Ford is the only teacher that can rock the gauchos and Birkenstocks like it’s nobody’s business.

4. The next candidate is Ms. Ralston. She’s young, hip, and always has the cutest outfits. She’s a huge science and math fan, and our country needs someone to represent the girls in this field. Plus, she has her own blog and is a whiz at photography, so this multi-talented, tech-savvy soon-to-be mama covers a lot of bases.

5. Of course, Ms. Schrader made the Voice’s List. She knows how to have a good time, but also isn’t afraid to lay down the law. She’s kind and understanding, and we need some kinder people on the face of our money.

6. Last but not least, Ms. Miller. Mother Mary is smart, witty, and of course very influential. She rules the school (literally), so why not the country? She keeps a school of 800 girls fully functional, basically making her Wonder Woman. Plus, no one can say no to her.
