December Teacher of the Month Maria Herrera

The Teacher of the Month for December 2018 is Reginald Chavez Elementray School's First and Second Grade Teacher Maria Herrera.

Maria Herrera is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for December. Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past nine years to recognize a few of the district’s outstanding teachers for their contributions to the classroom, school, and community.  In their second year, Flying Star Café is recognizing our teachers by donating a gift card.

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, a $50 gift card from Flying Star Café and acknowledgment on the APS website, Facebook page and electronic billboards.

They receive a small token of appreciation but represent the many outstanding teachers in Albuquerque Public Schools.
