Local teacher honored as part of Teacher Appreciation Week

CREATED May. 8, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A local teacher was honored on Wednesday during a special presentation for Teacher Appreciation Week at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Lucille Rogers Elementary school teacher Maggie Reardon did an outstanding job of raising 4th grade reading scores and championing advancement efforts.

The celebration was part of a luncheon about school reform, hosted by keynote speaker Elaine Wynn.

Reardon shared her teaching secrets, "You have to love it. You have to love them. They teach me so much more than I teach them about life, about what's important, how to let go of things and how to hold onto things."

Reardon was surprised with a plaque, cash gift and a basket full of supplies donated by Office Depot.
