(September 19, 2023…Phoenix, AZ) This month we honor 5th grade teacher Jennifer Spector of Desert View Elementary School with the Star Teacher Award. She has been a teacher for 21 years and received her B.A degree in education from Ottawa University. Her principal John Mospan said she is a very bright light in his school and the students really love her. Desert View is a Title 1 K-6 school in the Washington School District with 300 students and is located at 3rd Street and Alice in Sunnyslope. 92% of students are on a free breakfast and lunch program.
Jennifer was nominated by Bo Gates, also a teacher, who says she goes above and beyond for her students on a consistent basis. She is buying as many books as possible for her students with the $500 she received with the award.

A Valley teacher is chosen each month to receive $500 through a nominating process on the firm’s website www.bcattorneys.com. Nominations are accepted from students, former students and parents who wish to honor and thank a teacher who has had a profound impact on their life. Many teachers spend their own money to augment the costs of classroom supplies, field trips and other non-covered costs that arise throughout the school year. B&C hopes to alleviate that burden for one deserving teacher each month. In addition, the school where the educator teaches receives a check for $250 to be used at their discretion.
Nominations are open to all teachers in K-12 who teach in Maricopa County. Winners will be notified and then presented a check at their school by a member of Burch & Cracchiolo. Photos and/or video will be taken to post on the firm website and social media. To nominate go to www.bcattorneys.com, click on the “Nominate a Star Teacher” button and tell us why you think your teacher deserves the B&C Star Teacher Award.
