Two professional truck drivers have been able to correspond with students of North Glendale Elementary School thanks to first and fourth grade teacher Barbara Swalina.
Swalina oversees the Trucker Buddy program at North Glendale in which students get to write and receive letters with professional drivers Al and Kym Hemerson.
The Hemersons have been so impressed with Swalina and their access to the class that they nominated her as a Trucker Buddy Outstanding Teacher.
"We are able to communicate with the students not only through postcards
and letters, also through the use of the telephone; Mrs. Swalina has
allowed us access and interact with the class. While maintaining and instructing within the parameters of her curriculum, she has gone above and beyond the set outlined goal," the Hemersons tell truckerbuddy.org.
