Every week we honor another awesome teacher in the local area with our ‘Teacher of the Week’ award!

Congratulations to Rebeca Yoder, a teacher at Highland Elementary School in Riverside! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!” She was nominated by Jennifer Young, and here’s what she had to say:

"My son has Down Syndrome and is in Mrs. Yoder's kindergarten class. He uses some sign language, which she has incorporated into her class routines. He needs help with fine motor skills. She has the materials to help him. If she sees or hears something that will benefit any student she will do it or take a class to learn it."

For being an amazing teacher, Rebeca will be receiving gift cards from Wild Hogs in Walford and Kathy’s Pies!
