TUCSON - This "Teacher Appreciation Week," Kristi's Kids is teaming-up with "Tucson Values Teachers" to honor the best educators in our area.
Today, we tip our hats to Nathaniel Rios. Mr. Rios is a U.S. History/Government teacher at Flowing Wells High School.
Rios tell Kristi's Kids, he genuinely cares about his students. He says, "my job is to help them be successful human beings and contribute to society and have a love of learning... that's the best part... the students, period."
Rios got a "Teacher Excellence" award and gift certificate for his hard work and dedication. He says, his own children and wife should be included, since he couldn't do what he does without them.
Nathaniel Rios will be featured on News 4 Tucson at 5:00 p.m., Monday, May 5th.
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild has officially declared May 3-10 "Teacher Appreciation Week" in Tucson.
