Laura Mignon, a fourth-grade teacher at Picture Rocks Intermediate School, and Alia Christenson, kindergarten teacher at Desert Winds Elementary School, were lauded at Delta Kappa Gamma's Early Career Educator appreciation brunch April 6.

The organization promotes the professional and personal growth of female teachers. Honored teachers were in their first five years of teaching and nominated by their school principals for going beyond basic job requirements to help students. The teachers received a certificate of appreciation and a one-year membership to Treasures 4 Teachers, a Tempe-based nonprofit that provides supplies, resources and training to educators.
