Central Market takes Teacher of the Year party to winners’ classrooms


After being honored at a special reception on Jan. 17, Dallas ISD’s 2017-2018 Teachers of the Year were visited in their classrooms the next day by representatives from Central Market.

This year’s top teachers are Josue Tamarez Torres, a fifth-grade math teacher at Annie Webb Blanton Elementary School; Beth Poquette Drews, who teaches mariachi, orchestra and guitar for grades 6-8 at L.V. Stockard Middle School; and Nedra Johnson, who teaches science for grades 6-8 at Alex W. Spence Middle School.

Along with balloons, a cake and a fruit tray, teachers received a ceremonial check symbolizing the $5,000 prize each takes home and also a poster signed by well-wishers at Thursday night’s event.
