Husband and Wife Law Team Teacher Appreciation Contest Won by Deserving 6th Grade Teacher
Making a positive impact is something that the Husband and Wife Law Team, Mark and Alexis Breyer, enjoy as one of their favorite parts of giving back to the community.
Their monthly Teacher Appreciation award presentations across the state have been very well-received. The Husband and Wife Law Team extends their congratulations to their latest winning teacher, Ms. Shannon Moxley, at Tarwater Elementary School in Chandler!
Escorted to her classroom by the school principal, Mark Breyer, while on camera documenting the surprise like a Prize Patrol, entered Ms. Moxley’s classroom to see a room full of happy 6th graders, doing “Gangham-style” on their desks. Their attention quickly turned to Mark, and his giant check for $250 with Ms. Moxley’s name on it.
“If there were an award that recognizes the best teacher in all of Phoenix, Chandler, Glendale, everywhere you can think of, raise your hand if you think Ms. Moxley deserves to win that award,” Mark said to the class, to which all the students enthusiastically raised one — or both — of their hands.
Ms. Moxley’s students were all nearly as surprised as Ms. Moxley herself when Mark presented her with her check, and award. But when it came time for Mark to present the pizza party courtesy of Peter Piper Pizza, they seemed even more excited for that than they were about Ms. Moxley’s prize! Of course, what child doesn’t get excited for pizza?
The most common sentiment in the nominations for Ms. Moxley was that it was obvious to all that “she wakes up every morning excited to come to work.” One parent even shared that their child loved her class so much that he is sad and misses her during school breaks.
Caring for their students…out of their own pockets
With many school districts facing funding difficulties, more and more teachers find the need to spend portions of their own small salary to supply their students with basic educational supplies.
Annually, studies have found that nationwide, teachers spend over a billion dollars of their personal funds on their classrooms.
Share the Love
Continuing through the end of the 2012-2013 school year, nominations for The Husband and Wife Law Team’s Teacher Appreciation Program will be accepted on their website, at http://www.breyerlaw.com/lawyers-for-teachers.html.
Every month, Mark Breyer surprises one teacher with a $250 gift card and a free Peter Piper Pizza Party to the winning class. All Arizona teachers, from elementary, to middle, to high school are eligible to be selected. The Husband and Wife Law Team encourages school principals, administrators, and teacher peers to share the nomination site and submit their own nominations to recognize teachers they see who “make the grade.”
