Amy Martinez Perez, a dual language teacher at Don Haskins PK-8 School who was named the district’s Elementary Teacher of the Year; and Andreana Harkless, a physical education teacher at MacArthur PK-8 School who coaches volleyball, track, basketball and softball, and is the district’s Secondary Teacher of the Year; were surprised at their respective campuses by the mascot of the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes brand and namesake of the annual Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.
Each teacher received a commemorative football, a T-shirt, and a gift certificate for school supplies. They will also be recognized during the annual college football postseason bowl game that pits schools from the Pac-12 Conference and the Atlantic Coast Conference against each other. This year’s game will take place Friday, Dec. 30, in Sun Bowl Stadium.
