Lucy Quezada has done an outstanding job in her role as the JA Finance Park Lead Teacher for the past 7 years.  Her sincere belief in the mission of Junior Achievement is very apparent and she takes the time and care to ensure that all of her students at P.H. Gonzales receive a quality JA program.

Lucy was selected from a total of 76 JA Finance Park lead teachers because of her focus on quality and inspiring young people towards success.

Danielle Smith, a JA Education Manager who has worked with Lucy had this to say:

“Lucy is one of those rare teachers who just perform with excellence year-in-and-year-out. She is a great communicator, extremely professional, positive, and truly understands the value of positive role models.  We want  to say ‘Thank you’ and to recognize the dedication and hard work that Lucy has put into her role as the JA Finance Park Lead Teacher by honoring her as JA’s 15-16 Educator of the Year.”
