LA to benefit from Torres’ travel

-A A +A

Though Teacher of the Year Carolyn Torres will be traveling the states as part of her new status this year, it will be the community of Los Alamos that stands to benefit the most.
She’s already been out to Arizona, where she’s met the other teachers of the year from the other states during a weeklong conference in January. She described it as a prep course for what to expect on her tour, as well as a way to get acquainted with her fellow teachers.
“We did our introductions, practiced our speeches and learned what will be expected of us,” Torres said.
The Teacher of the Year Award is sponsored, in part, by The New Mexico Public Education Department and TEACHNM, an organization that offers teachers career guidance.
The score is partly based on a description of how and what they teach and how they apply Common Core techniques. Her tour is being sponsored in part by the National Network of State Teachers of the Year and the Council of Chief State School Officers.
Of course, Los Alamos has been helping her get ready for her tour as well. Earlier this month, Beaver Toyota stepped forward with a leased, 2014 Toyota Corolla to help her get around within the state, and countless businesses including C.B. Fox, Smith’s and others helping her with her wardrobe and travel expenses.
