On Wednesday, Portland VFW Post 4090 presented Kaye Sandborn to the Saint Patrick School Board as their choice for the 2019 High School Teacher of the Year.
Post Commander, William Almy, addressed the school board by explaining, “Each year post 4090 is given the opportunity to recognize and honor the teachers from our community who we feel have gone above and beyond the call.”
He went on to say, “Mrs. Sandborn started her teaching career at the age of 40.” She says her greatest accomplishments are, “watching students graduate at her school and knowing that she played a part of their achievement.”
Before Commander Almy presented the award, he shared information on the number of VFW posts that compete for Teacher of the Year nomination. “In our district, which is district 9, there are 32 VFW posts scattered throughout six counties. All 32 posts are given the opportunity to nominate a teacher from elementary, middle school and high school. “
Kaye Sandborn was selected for both Post 4090 High School Teacher of the year, and District 9 High School Teacher of the year.”
