Guadalupe Cardenas of Larkspur wins Celebrate Teachers!
Guadalupe Cardenas, second grade teacher at Larkspur Elementary School, was recently announced as the North Star Mall's Celebrate Teachers contest winner on May 7.
"The goal of Celebrate Teachers was to recognize a local teacher who shows extra effort and caring in the classroom and affects their students' lives in positive and unique ways," said Susie Juvera, customer service supervisor at North Star. "Many people in our community saw those traits in [Guadalupe's] classroom."
The announcement was made just in time for National Teacher Day. Cardenas was awarded a $500 mail gift card as a winner of the contest. Votes were entered through facebook where the community could read biographies of the nominated teachers and select which one they felt earned the recognition.
