Belaire Teacher Honored By Office Max

October 6, 2009

SAISD teacher Charlie Berkshire is the recipient of the annual "A Day Made Better" event sponsored by Office Max. The local Office Max team surprised Mrs. Berkshire in her classroom at Belaire Elementary with $1,000 worth of school supplies. Principal Tia Agan, who made the nomination, stated, "Mrs. Berkshire was nominated because she is an exemplary teacher who does so much for children behind the scenes that most people don't even know about! She mentors, tutors, gives children a purpose for coming to school, and teaches children responsibility and respect as well as the ability to think critically and problem-solve for success beyond the classroom."

Mrs. Berkshire, who has been a teacher with San Angelo ISD for 19 years and part of the Belaire faculty for 10 years, received $1,000 worth of school supplies for her 5th grade classroom.
