Teachers Are Heroes, Azusa Pacific University Murrieta Regional Center, and KATY-FM 101.3 The Mix wants to celebrate and reward those special teachers that have impacted our lives. Once a month, Teachers Are Heroes will recognize a teacher who personifies dedication to their students. Each honoree will win great prizes from KATY-FM and a classroom pizza party from The Pizza Factory in Temecula. All selected teachers and their classes will attend a celebration at the end of the year at the popular Lake Elsinore Storm.
Azusa Pacific University (APU) Murrieta Regional Center and KATY-FM 101.3, The Mix, recognized the November recipient of the Teachers are Heroes contest. The November recipient was Mr. Josh Martin, 5th grade teacher from San Jacinto Valley Academy located in San Jacinto. Mr. Martin received a certificate of recognition, movie tickets, Palm Springs Aerial Tram passes, San Diego Wild Animal Park tickets, and other prizes. The entire class received a pizza party from the Pizza Factory in Temecula. He was nominated by his student, Faith McKee, who said about Mr. Martin, “He goes beyond caring! Whatever subject we struggle in, he takes the time to have after school classes and works with us one-on-one during class to help. He’s so funny too – we think the world of him!”
Teachers can be nominated by students, parents, and even other school administrators. Winners are selected based on compelling submissions from nominators on the effective and creative ways teachers work with students. Nominations for the 2013-2014 “Teachers Are Heroes” promotion are currently being taken until the last week of April 2014. For more information go to www.1013themix.com , keyword: Teachers.
