Cave Creek Teacher Receives Excellence in Education Award

Congratulations to principal and teacher Sharon Pritash of Annunciation Catholic School in Cave Creek for receiving the Excellence in Education Award for the month of March.

 "Her integrity and dedication provide a fun-filled and faithful academic setting. In addition, she has a non-stop energy and vivaciousness that allows her to not only tackle the various principal duties, but also lead our fourth-graders to academic excellence," said Peg Tanner, whose daughter is in Dr. Pritash's class.

 Excellence in Education is a partnership between Rio Salado College and KEZ 99.9 FM, which recognizes Valley teachers. Students and parents of students are encouraged to nominate K-12 teachers who are excellent at their profession and have gone above-and-beyond the call of duty to make a difference in their community.

Each month, a Valley K-12 teacher will be selected from all the entries to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to education. KEZ’s Marty Manning will visit the teacher’s school to surprise them with their “Excellence in Education” Award. The surprise visit will be broadcast during the Beth and Friends Show. All winning teachers are rewarded with $99, an Excellence in Education Award, and a Rio Salado College gift bag.
