School is back in session and The Eagle is happy to once again team up with Mrs. Baird’s to honor our area teachers! It’s another fun school year with Mrs. Baird’s “Teachers on the Rise.” All Amarillo and area Panhandle educators are eligible including home school. If you have a favorite teacher who goes above and beyond, this is a great way to thank them for all they do. Each month an elementary, middle school and high school teacher will be selected as a Teacher on The Rise. Winning teachers receive great prizes totally more than $200. The student who nominates them will also receive a $50 Visa gift card.
