April Teacher of the Month: Laurie Benson

The April 2024 Pepsi Teacher of the Month is Laurie Benson of Zuni Elementary School

Laurie Benson is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for April. Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past 13 years to recognize 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 and acknowledgment on the APS website, Facebook page, and electronic billboards. In their first year, Dion's is recognizing teachers by donating a gift card.

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