Teachers on the Rise for December and January

AMARILLO, Texas — The United Family and Mrs Baird’s Bread® announced the December and January winners of the eleventh annual Teachers On The Rise program. Since the program launched at the beginning of the school year, nominations have poured in from students and families across the High Plains explaining the ways their teacher(s) go above and beyond the call of duty and why they deserve special recognition.

Congratulations to our winners from December: Chynna Valenzuela of Wolflin Elementary (Amarillo ISD), Rebecca McLeland of Bonham Middle School (Amarillo ISD), and Kathy Hill of Canadian High School (Canadian ISD).

Congratulations to our winners from January: Juliet Valdez of Coronado Elementary (Amarillo ISD), PJ Henderson of Fannin Middle School (Amarillo ISD), and the January high school winner will be announced soon.

“We are thrilled for this round of winners,” said Abie Rampy, director of public relations for The United Family. “Teachers serve such a vital purpose in our communities and they are incredibly deserving of recognition. With just a few more months left in the school year, we encourage students to nominate their favorite teachers every month!”

“We know there are many teachers in our classrooms who deserve recognition, and we look forward to receiving many more nominations this spring,” said Shane Sumrow, the director of Teachers On The Rise. “We only have four more months left in the school year to nominate teachers, so we encourage students and families to get their nominations in soon.”

Winning teachers receive a $100 United Supermarkets gift card, $100 American Express gift card from Tyler’s Barbecue in Amarillo, a $100 Amazon gift card from Horse Creek Boutique in Spearman for classroom supplies, and a gift basket full of Mrs Baird’s goodies. The students who nominate a winning teacher also receive a $50 American Express gift card. Teachers On The Rise is sponsored by the Kids Incorporated who hosts the program’s year-end banquet.
