The Nogales Unified School District continued its tradition started this semester of honoring an outstanding educator with the selection of Robert M. Bracker Elementary School Reading Specialist Penelope Munguia.
Supt. Fernando Parra presented Munguia to the NUSD governing board at its meeting March 10, 2017, noting that she had already earned honors as a Teacher of the Year and as an ambassador for NUSD.
“Ms. Munguia is a 1995 graduate of Nogales High School,” Parra noted. “She works with students and teachers both to improve reading skills, and she has done an excellent job for us.”
Munguia said that Bracker has always been her “home” for the 19 years she has been in education. “I have learned from many great leaders in the District,” she added.
