November Teacher of the Month, Michelle Whiteaker

The Teacher of the Month for November 2022 is Michelle Whiteaker of Marie Hughes Elementary School.

Michelle Whiteaker is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for November. Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past 12 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.

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