November Teacher of the Month, Valerie Vanderpool-Coker

The Teacher of the Month for November 2020 is Valerie Vanderpool-Coker of Alvarado ES.

Valerie Vanderpool-Coker is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for November. Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past ten 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 recognizes 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.
