Holiday gift-giving started early in the Cartwright School District. On Tuesday, November 24, Tracy Wagner, a fourth grade teacher at Peralta Elementary, was selected by SunTec Concrete Corporation to receive $6,000 in supplies for her school. Supplies included uniforms for students, literature, paper, toner, computer cartridges, cleaners and science supplies.
Principal Jennifer Botello explained, “Ms. Wagner was nominated for the award by some of the parents in the school community. She was recognized for her generosity in education and because she is an outstanding teacher who makes a difference in her students’ lives.”
Employees from SunTec visited the school to deliver the supplies and congratulate her in person. She is one of hundreds of teachers who work tirelessly to provide quality education to the Cartwright students each day.
Wagner said, “At times teaching is a very difficult and thankless job. Acts of generosity like this remind me that I can always make a difference in my students’ lives. I love teaching because I can be that voice in their head that tells them that they are important and can succeed. I love to instill the quest for knowledge and inquiry in my students, that’s what’s fun to watch!”
