Theresa Petit

Theresa Petit, a fifth grade teacher at Rio Hondo Elementary, was surprised with $1,000 in school supplies Tuesday by OfficeMax. The office supply chain operates "A Day Made Better" advocacy program that seeks to eliminate teacher-funded classrooms. Petit was nominated for the program by Principal Theresa Ford for her "extraordinary efforts in the classroom." ********** Published: Oct. 3, 2013 - Volume 12 - Issue 25
