APS / Pepsi Teacher of the Month

Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past decade 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; and
  • A small token of appreciation but represent the many outstanding teachers in Albuquerque Public Schools.
