Educator Appreciation: Part 3

Educator Appreciation Part 3

Sometimes funny, sometimes heartwarming, we’ve been collecting some of the best 2019-2020 stories from educators around the state. As educators, we make a profound difference in people’s lives, (and sometimes even save them!). 

Check out some highlights we found from our partner’s school year.

Basha High School gives back

There were too many examples of great community service to count, but we especially liked this photo of Basha Principal David Loutzenheiser and Assistant Principal Gary Fujino, with the Chandler Unified School District, as they volunteered with Feed My Starving Children in February. Looking good!
