Cortez Teacher Celebrated as a "Hero in the Classroom"
September 2011-  Cortez Language Arts/Read 180 teacher Amy Sherrill was honored at the Arizona Cardinals home opener Sunday by the “Heroes in the Classroom” program.

Presented by the Arizona Cardinals and the University of Phoenix, this award aims to “recognize and reward” Arizona teachers ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade.  Teachers are nominated and then selected by the Heroes in the Classroom panel.

According to the Arizona Cardinals website, a total of 24 teachers state-wide are selected throughout the season.  These chosen few receive a complimentary Cardinals jersey, four tickets to a regular season home game, and four VIP sideline passes.

GUHSD is proud to recognize this accomplishment.  Congratulations, Amy Sherrill!
