Librarian Erika Wimble had a surprise visit from KNIX Radio, May 5, to announce that she was the Teacher of the Week, sponsored by Larry Miller Chrysler-Jeep in Avondale and the Arizona Milk Producers. She received a $300 check, a gift bag and a glass trophy. A student assistant in the library, Jonathan Morales nominated her and had this to say in his nomination form.
“It's not hard to understand why so many kids flock to the library every day. She brings the library to life and makes everyone feel welcome. She opens the library before school, during lunch and keeps the library open for hours after school. She selflessly devotes herself and her time to help students who lack the funds/resources. Mrs. Wimble has pushed me and has given me the opportunity to grow and accomplish great things. She bought me a copy of The Real ACT Prep Guide and would constantly make me study. Because of her, I was able to score a 30 on my ACT. Although I doubted myself, her confidence in me never wavered.”
Wimble has been with Camelback for four years, following 15 years teaching elementary students.
