Pepsi, Foundation Honor Teachers for the 10th Year

The Teacher of the Month for September 2019 is Rachel Greene of Oñate ES.

Ten years ago, Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation began recognizing just a few of the district’s outstanding teachers for their contributions to the classroom, school, and community. They receive a small token of appreciation but more importantly represent the many outstanding teachers in Albuquerque Public Schools.

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. In their third year, Flying Star Café is recognizing our teachers by donating a gift card.

The first teacher to receive the honor for the 2019-20 school year is truly a representative of the hard work that’s happening in our schools. 

Meet Rachel Greene of Oñate ES.
