Arizona Educational Foundation’s 2020 Teacher of the Year Lynette Stant encourages students interested in teaching to get in the classroom and start helping students.
Stant, who is Navajo, is the first Native American woman named Arizona Educational Foundation Arizona Teacher of the Year.
“Being a Native American educator is so important,” said Stant, a third-grade teacher at Salt River Elementary School. “I teach in a reservation school. I know it is too valuable for those students to see teachers who look just like them.”
