Our club is proud to present this recognition to Katie Barton for November and Lisa King for December.  Each receive a Certificate of Recognition and a check for $200 from the Sun Lakes Rotary Club, $200 from Earnhardt Automotive Center and $100 from Trust Bank.
Katie Barton is a graduate of Arizona State University with dual bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education. She began teaching Special Education at Chandler Unified Schools Basha Elementary in 2016.  Her educational philosophy is to provide a safe, happy, consistent, and educationally rich classroom for each of her students. Each day she strives to provide the best individual education for every student.
Lisa King is excited to be part of the Chandler Unified Schools Weinberg Gifted Academy maiden voyage as a kindergarten teacher.  She holds degrees in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education and will be graduating with her master’s degree in Gifted Education in July.  She loves teaching and she embraces a classroom environment where all are comfortable trying new things, expressing new ideas and even making mistakes. All have strengths and weaknesses and the beauty in learning comes when all can learn together
Our Sun Lakes Rotary Club is proud to honor these two outstanding teachers!
