Algebra teacher Vickie McGiffin receives the Tonka Champion award on Dec. 18. McGiffin is only the third teacher to receive this award and was gifted a t-shirt with “Tonka Champion” on the front. Juniors Emily Reed and Sancia Reynaga nominated the teacher for her kind and helpful heart.

“She listens and cares about your personal problems,” Reynaga said. “She cares about your life, not just your grade.”
