Home Teacher Appreciation Contest December 2018 Winner: Cheryl Bodnar

Congratulations to our December Teacher Appreciation Winner: Cheryl Bodnar

Teacher Appreciation Contest

With the help of the principal at Cortina Elementary, Dawn Michaelson, The Husband & Wife Law Team surprised a wonderful and deserving recipient with their monthly Teacher Appreciation Award. Cheryl Bodnar, who received over a dozen nominations, was surprised in front of an assembly of kids ranging from many different grades at Cortina Elementary. Cheryl and her students were shocked as they weren’t expecting this surprise. Mark had a check for Cheryl in the amount of $250.00, a Teacher Appreciation plaque for her classroom, and a few more surprises! Mark expressed the importance of how much teachers do, but how few of them actually get the recognition they deserve. She was humbled and even more surprised when she was told that she would be featured on The Husband and Wife billboards throughout the Valley for a day. But the surprises didn’t stop there. Not only was she awarded $250.00 and an appreciation plaque, but Mark also rewarded Cheryl and her students with a pizza party!

Cheryl Bodnar, Cortina Elementary

Cheryl Bodnar grew up in New York, but found her love for the sunny state of Arizona where she began her teaching career. She has been teaching at Cortina Elementary for fourteen years and absolutely loves what she does. Ms. Bodnar brings such a positive attitude each and every day and not only teaches her students through academics, but within the community as well. She does this through various activities such as blanket and sock drives, adopting families during Christmas season and volunteering at Feed my Starving Children. During her free time she loves hanging out at the beach or exploring a hike in the mountain hills of Arizona. However, when she’s at home she enjoys simply spending time with her daughter or enjoying a great book!

How can you reward your favorite teacher? It’s simple!

All too often great teachers go unrecognized for the hard work and dedication they pour into the classroom. The Husband & Wife Law Team’s Teacher Appreciation Award aims to give credit where it is due, by rewarding one amazing teacher each month.

Mark and Alexis, successful attorneys and parents to 8 children, know the impact a great teacher makes. “I grew up seeing the importance of teachers in communities, and saw firsthand how they give so freely, so their students can thrive,” said Mark Breyer.
