We congratulate Mrs. Ana Portela who has been chosen as the deserving recipient of the 2015 ‘Un Maestro Especial’ Award. One of our families nominated her, submitting an essay highlighting Mrs. Portela as making a distinct and positive impact in the lives of her students. Un Maestro Especial provides an opportunity for the parents, students, and professional colleagues of our community to nominate whom they consider to have exemplified exceptional qualities as teachers. Mrs. Portela will be awarded a cash prize at a luncheon on May 21st. Additionally, a camera crew will visit our school to record footage of the winning teacher during her regular activities. The profile will air on Univision 23.
