February Teacher of the Month Janalyn Maes

The Teacher of the Month for February 2019 is Hodgin Elementary School's Second Grade Teacher Janalyn Maes.

Janalyn Maes is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for February. 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.
