April's Teacher of the Month is none other than RVLA's, Mrs. Luz Yvette Tobias. Mrs. Tobias is as loyal as they come, as she has been a proud RVLA Little Giant since she received her degree in 2005. She is an excellent example and supporter to her entire staff as she has taught kinder for 11 years and even served as the Literacy Coach for 5 years. Mrs. Tobias is very resourceful and is always ready to share her teaching techniques and skills with everyone around her.
