ABQ the Magazine Recognizes 12 APS Teacher Who Go Above & Beyond

The teachers will be featured in the magazine's first digital edition next week, but the magazine gave us a sneak peek.

Many of our teachers, and staff for that matter, go above and beyond for the students and families we serve. That has become even more evident during this public health crisis.

Thanks to all who go above and beyond every day. And congratulations to the 12 teachers who were nominated by colleagues, students, and families a few months ago (many of whom appear in the magazine photos along with them). The honor is well deserved! 

Check out the recognition in Albuquerque the Magazine's first digital edition the week of April 13.
