Socorro Acosta was nominated by her principal, Claudia Espinoza.

Ms. Acosta has been an educator for the past twenty years. Her dedication and constant persistence to help students learn to read is commendable. She is one of the most dedicated individuals that Espinoza has had ever had honor of working with. Ms. Acosta is constantly working to improve each child's academic success in her classroom. On any given day, her students can be found working one-on-one with her, or supporting other student's.

The atmosphere in Ms. Acosta's class is one where students care for each other and treat others with respect. She allows her students to make mistakes, because they offer great learning opportunities to grow and move forward. She is committed to nurturing every student, and encourages them to take care of one another.

"Ms. Acosta is well planned each day to provide the best instruction for every student," Espinoza said. "She is an outstanding, soft spoken, and driven individual who wants to see her students succeed."
