Four APS Teachers Recognized by OfficeMax

OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom recently surprised four Albuquerque Public Schools elementary teachers with boxes full of classroom supplies as part of its annual “A Day Made Better” event. The local stores recognized Carol Ruff of Alameda, Linda Smith of Apache, Steven Lamb of E.G. Ross and Bob Lovato of Mission Avenue for their work with students, and to help teachers who purchase supplies out of their own pockets.

The national one-day event awards more than $1,000 each to more than 1,000 educators and their schools across the country. Local stores choose the schools, the schools select a teacher and OfficeMax staff surprise the teachers in their classrooms.

OfficeMax quoted a National Education Association survey that said that teachers spend an average of $1,000 each year on supplies for their classrooms.
