Tolman named Arizona's New Marketing Teacher of the Year
Vicki Tolman, Skyline High business teacher, was honored by peers throughout the state.
In addition to presenting her the award, teachers in the Arizona Marketing Educators Association elected Tolman president-elect — the top three-year statewide leadership position.
Members of Tolman's Distributive Education Clubs of America chapter have won scholarships and awards — placing as high as the Top 10 in international DECA competition.
"These honors are a direct reflection of the amazing Skyline High marketing students and DECA competitors and the talented Arizona marketing teachers who have shared so many ideas and best practices with me!" Tolman said.
"I feel very blessed to have been mentored by Mesa's own Kathy Frommer, Mountain View DECA adviser. She is an outstanding marketing educator."
This is Tolman's fourth year as a Skyline teacher, where she says, "Students are challenged to think outside of the box and become all they can become as they learn academic concepts and apply them to real world settings."
