Phoenix, Arizona - Ahwatukee Husband and Wife Law Team, Mark and Alexis Breyer, created their Teacher Appreciation program to provide recognition and some much-needed financial assistance to Arizona teachers. The program grants a $250 gift card for classroom supplies to one winning teacher each month. Any Arizona teacher at the elementary, middle, or high school levels are eligible for nominations.
Prominent personal injury lawyers Mark and Alexis Breyer, known throughout Arizona as "The Husband and Wife Law Team," are happy to announce that the latest winner is Ms. Lynn Price of Kyrene de la Esperanza Elementary School, who was also recently recognized as the best teacher in Ahwatukee for 2011 by The Ahwatukee Foothills News.
Ms. Price received more nominations than any other teacher has received in the contest.
"She gives so much to her students all the time. Crafts, arts, snacks, love! She is like a second mother to my (children), she minds them so well!" one nomination praised.
Another nomination shared, "[Ms. Price] makes each of her students feel comfortable and important each day…there needs to be more educators like [her] making a difference each day."
Arizona injury attorneys, Mark and Alexis Breyer, who also are parents of eight children who have gone through, are going through, or plan to go through the Kyrene school system, were very happy to recognize Ms. Price after her recent acknowledgement by the Ahwatukee Foothills News "Best of" edition for 2011.
"Coming from a family of teachers, I am very happy to be a part of such a rewarding program for these deserving teachers," said Mark.
"Congratulations to Ms. Price and to her lucky students for having such a wonderful teacher to start off their school careers," Alexis stated.
Showing Teachers Gratitude
On average, public school teachers spend almost $400 out of their own finances to provide supplies for their students every year, according to a 2010 study by the National School Supply and Equipment Association. That adds up to upwards of $1.33 billion dollars nationwide. With increasing financial constraints on more and more American families, purchasing school supplies is becoming more of a burden and more children are being sent to class without the necessities they need to succeed. Teachers are often expected to step in and cover the gaps.
