(March 31, 2021…Phoenix, AZ) The law firm of Burch & Cracchiolo, P.A. is proud to announce Amanda Hall has been named the March 2021 recipient of the “B&C Star Teacher Award.” She teaches first grade Spanish Immersion Dual Language at San Tan Elementary School in the Higley Unified School District in Chandler, AZ.
Hall earned her M.A in Bilingual Education at Northern Arizona University in 2007 and her B.A. in Elementary Education at Arizona State University in 2002. Hall was nominated by a student parent, Andrew Sirbaugh. His nomination reads:
"Mrs. Hall is the kind of teacher you hope each of your children can have every single year. She was our oldest son Luke's teacher a few years ago and now she is our youngest son Andrew's teacher. She is the First Grade Spanish Immersion Dual Language English Teacher. Every day, she walks into her classroom and greets her students with the most radiant smile. As my older son would say, "Mrs. Hall has the most beautiful voice." She is kind, compassionate, and has a way of reaching every one of her students. Her impact on both of our children is priceless. Both our boys are gifted, and she took the initiative to differentiate her instruction to meet their needs. In fact, it was her idea to have them tested for the gifted program. In addition, her ability to and willingness to find the right path for those students who struggle with behavior is exceptional. I can't enough about her positive impact on our boys and all the children fortunate to have her as their teacher!"
A Valley teacher is chosen each month to receive $500 through a nominating process on the firm’s website www.bcattorneys.com. Nominations will be accepted from students, former students and parents who wish to honor and thank a teacher who has had a great 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.
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.
