COLORADO SPRINGS — It's time to recognize this month's winner of the Teachers First Award.
Charlie Mathews, the middle school band and orchestra teacher at Discovery Canyon is October's winner.
Mr. Mathews was nominated by a parent who says that since he started in 2016, he's grown the music program and used his passion for music to inspire his students, many of whom are learning to play instruments for the first time.
Mr. Mathews creates a fun, yet challenging learning environment for his students and even started a jazz band program for the kids to branch out and try new things.
Congratulations to Charlie Mathews, October's winner of the Teachers First Award.
