This is the third year for “A Day Made Better.” OfficeMax spokesman Bob Thacker explains the rationale:
“Teachers inspire and shape our country’s greatest asset, our children, and it is astounding that they are left to cover the cost of doing a good job. We hope that today’s events will generate a grassroots movement in support of teachers and demonstrate how easy it is to make a difference.”
OfficeMax worked with the organization Adopt-A-Classroom to identify schools for “A Day Made Better,” and each principal was invited to nominate one teacher who exemplified passion, dedication and innovation in the classroom. Presenting the gifts at Hayhurst were representatives of the Tigard OfficeMax.
Morrison, the principal, praised Iverson for her efforts — while noting that all of her teachers were deserving of recognition.
Other teachers honored in Portland Public Schools were Sally Stephenson, fifth grade, Grout Elementary School; Joey Chase, third grade, Peninsula K-8 School; Curtis Wilson III, second grade, Sitton Elementary School, and Tara Branham, sixth through eighth grade, Sunnyside Environmental School.
