Teacher Appreciation Spotlight – Altadena Arts Magnet

By Benita Scheckel, Principal – Altadena Arts Magnet

Altadena Arts Magnet is the premiere arts and French dual language immersion elementary school in the San Gabriel Valley. One of our school’s biggest strengths is its incredible, dedicated, hard-working, professional teaching staff who go above and beyond to not only educate our students, but to enrich their lives with a positive social-emotional foundation through our relational classroom model. They are the backbone of our school community.

To celebrate and honor the invaluable gifts our teachers bring to our students, the Altadena Arts Magnet PTA is gifting the team with a Staff Lounge Makeover. Additionally, families and students sent us videos, photos, and digital cards to share with the teachers this week.  Finally, special treats (surprises!) will be delivered to every teacher this week.

I am incredibly happy to share some of these wonderful acts of teacher appreciation with you. A school is only as successful as its team of teachers and at Altadena Arts Magnet we are many voices, one song, rising to greatness.
