Teacher of the Month Victoria Miller, Mountain View ES

Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation recognize some of our outstanding teachers.

“Do or do not, there is no try.”

These are the words Victoria Miller instills in her fourth graders at Mountain View Elementary School every day.

"I always tell them you have to put your full self into everything you do," Miller said. "You may fail, but if you don't put your whole self into it, you’re never going to get a whole thing out of it either.”

Miller is the Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s Teacher of the Month for September.

Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have partnered for the past seven years to recognize a few of the district’s outstanding teachers for their contributions to the classroom, school and community.  This year, Flying Star Café is also 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 acknowledgement 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.
