Larsen School Teacher Selected Office Max Teacher of the Year

Pearl B. Larsen Elementary School teacher Ancelma Elliott was surprised today when Office Max personnel walked through her classroom door with a bundle of supplies, materials and equipment to make her teaching pursuit easier. Elliott was selected as St. Croix Office Max Teacher of the Year after she was nominated by her school’s administration for the company’s project “A Day Made Better,” a national cause event founded to erase teacher-funded classrooms. The surprised fourth grade teacher received a certificate, a bouquet of flowers and $1,000 worth of school supplies and other equipment.
“Ms. Elliott faces many challenges: for one thing, her classroom has the maximum of 30 students” Larsen School Principal Rodney Moorehead said. “She works diligently to ensure each student receives adequate instructions.” Elliott was nominated on the criteria of dedication, innovation, passion and need.
Office Max “A Day Made Better” helps defray the cost of teachers spending on classroom supplies, according St. Croix Office Max representative Susan Harper.
