October Teacher of the Month, Trish Merewether

Posted October 14, 2022, 3:35 PM. Updated October 31, 2022, 4:23 PM.

The Teacher of the Month for October 2022 is Trish Merewether of Rio Grande High School.

Trish Merewether is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for October. 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.
