Announcing the
On May 26th, the Foundation, along with SLAM students, presented Redwood Science and AP Bio teacher Amy Mastromonaco with the inaugural David J. Sondheim North Star Award! Over the past ten years, the Foundation has had a special partnership with principal Sondheim and has benefited from his guidance, energy and drive to make Redwood a better place for all students and the staff. To honor his legacy, the Foundation established this annual monetary teacher award and worked with SLAM students to define the award name, criteria and nominations.

Teachers that were nominated are those that stand out in one or more of the following areas:
1. Teachers who foster a supportive, respectful, and safe environment for all students and someone that goes out of their way to support students both in and outside the classroom. 
2. A teacher who recognizes and honors students' individual needs and learning styles
3. Teachers that adapt their lesson plans to stay culturally relevant and reflect current issues 

A GIANT congratulations to Amy Mastromonaco and to David Sondheim on his retirement!
