Carla Randazzo, a kindergarten teacher at Golden Empire Elementary School, has been selected by ABC 10 as the “Teacher of the Month” for September.

Randazzo was surprised with a $1,000 check from Schools Financial Credit Union last week and was interviewed by ABC 10. She will now be considered for the station’s Teacher of the Year prize which comes with a $5,000 prize.

A 20-year public school veteran, Randazzo is a champion for early learning. Randazzo incorporates music and songs into the kinder experience, and this year removed her teacher’s desk to make room for a cozy reading corner. She works with students on learning the routines and rhythms of school, embraces parent involvement in class and challenges children to become “experts” at numeracy, writing and reading.
