Congratulations to McArthur High School teacher Margarita Sweeting on being elected a “Commander of the Classroom” by Walmart. Representatives from Walmart surprised Sweeting, a journalism teacher at McArthur High, with the honor and a $490 gift card for classroom supplies. As part of an effort to recognize teachers as the most important part of school, Walmart called on its customers across the country to nominate their favorite teacher and share why they deserve recognition. Sweeting is one of 20 “Commanders in Teach(ers)” in the nation selected for the honor.
“Ms. Sweeting is such a phenomenal teacher. She makes it her mission to not only instill valuable educational lessons in her students, but valuable life lessons as well,” said one of her students. “You can always count on her to be understanding, charismatic and just plain sweet.”
