AZ Diamondbacks Most Valuable Teacher!

Two Phoenix Union Teachers were honored in the first month of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Most Valuable Teacher program.  Camelback’s own Jennifer Manlick was one of them, earning $1,000 for classroom supplies during a pre-game ceremony and then got to stay for the Diamondbacks-Cubs game, April 26.   Manlick teaches environmental science. Ten Most Valuable Teachers are selected each month, and at the end of the season, one teacher will receive an additional $5,000. Because the program is sponsored by Papa John’s, each teacher also gets a pizza party for their class.
