Pepsi, Foundation Honor Teachers for the 9th Year

The Teacher of the Month for October 2018 is Cibola High School's Marine Corps Junior ROTC Instructor Jimmy "Gunny" Flores.

Nine years ago, Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation began recognizing just a few of the district’s outstanding teachers for their contributions to the classroom, school and community. They receive a small token of appreciation  but more importantly represent the many outstanding teachers in Albuquerque Public Schools.

The Foundation randomly selects one APS school each month, and that school’s principal or staff chooses a teacher to be honored. The teacher receives a $100 check from Pepsi and acknowledgement on the APS website, Facebook page and electronic billboards.

The first teacher to receive the honor for the 2018-19 school year is truly representative of the hard work that’s happening in our schools. 

Meet Cibola High School's Marine Corps Junior ROTC Instructor Jimmy "Gunny" Flores.
