Growing up in the South Valley, Patricia Archuleta knew she wanted to give back to her community and there is no better way then to teach.  Attending Kit Carson Elementary, Ernie Pyle Middle School, and Rio Grande High School she always loved school and knew she wanted to be in the classroom some day.  Archuleta is this Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s January Teacher of the Month.

Archuleta says she lays out strong expectations of her Kindergarten students to do their best and to respect one another at all times.  Her classroom, is orderly and focused even when transitioning from large group activities to independent work. 

Armijo Principal Shawna Stewart says Archuleta is always going above and beyond not only in her classroom but to help improve the entire school and community.

This is the sixth year that Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have honored a teacher of the month.
