GLOBE — Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1704 honored Globe High School teacher Ed Gardea with teacher of the year honors for District 6 of the VFW.

The VFW recognizes and honors the top Elementary (K-5), Junior High (6-8), and High School (9-12) teacher of the year, who teaches citizenship and education topics, and promotes America’s history, traditions, and institutions. Attributes considered will be the scope of the teaching on both the students and the community.

Gardea was also given a statewide recognition through the VFW for his involvement in civics education. Gardea not only teaches at GHS, but also advises the Positive Behavior student group, volunteers throughout the school and community and truly cares about students.
