Pepsi, Foundation Honor Teachers for 8th Year

The first two recipients for this school year are Julie Huerta of John Baker Elementary and Karan Thorne of Chamiza Elementary.

Eight 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.

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.

The first teacher to receive the honor for 2017-18 is truly a representative of the hard work that’s happening in our schools.

Teacher of the Month for August, is Julie Huerta, a special education teacher at John Baker Elementary School.

The second recipient of this honor this school year is Karan Thorne, a second-grade teacher at Chamiza Elementary School.
