Sponsorship levels include: $4,000, diamond; $3,000, platinum; $2,000, gold; $1,000, silver; and $500, copper, according to a release.

The monies will be used to underwrite the ceremony as well as creating an AJUSD Teacher of the Year Wall of Fame in the district office and a Teacher of the Year reception to honor the four teachers’ accomplishments.

Sponsors will be listed in the agenda, as well as in all media materials such as press releases, Facebook posts, Twitter and a special invitation to the Teacher of the Year reception.

“Teachers have a vital role in the education of our children and in the future of our community,” AJUSD Superintendent Dr. Krista Anderson said in the release. “It is no secret that even the best teachers are underpaid, but it is our goal to make sure they feel appreciated and valued for the important work they do. This teacher of the year ceremony is one small way that we can show our gratitude and provide other teachers with a role model to follow.”
