Local teacher earns monetary match for projects
A teacher at Colegio Petite charter school in Nogales earned $416 in matching donations from Sonic Drive-In in May for three of her classroom projects.
Jennifer Mireles earned the funds with her projects “Bookshelves for Readers,” “Organization With Command Hooks” and “A Nugget with a Side of Books, Please!”
The awards were part of the fast food chain’s Limeades for Learning initiative, conducted in partnership with the nonprofit DonorChoose.org to help teachers obtain needed classroom supplies and learning resources.
