Sierra Vista teacher named ambassador

Sunnyside teacher Maria Garcia has been named a Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium ambassador.

Sunnyside Schools Superintendent Dr. Rick Cole told the Sunnyside School Board last Thursday night that Garcia, a teacher at Sunnyside’s Sierra Vista Middle School, was selected for the honor by the National Education Association. Cole had hoped to introduce Garcia to the board at the board meeting, but she was unable to attend.

Cole said the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is designed to increase educator understanding of the Smarter Balanced Assessment System.
