Wells Fargo is honoring Arizona’s Teacher of the Year on its ATMs across the state.

Wells Fargo’s ATM users can learn more about Martorelli’s teaching achievements by simply pressing a button on the screen.

“Teachers are the backbone of our community and we believe it’s important to celebrate the great teachers who encourage, support and inspire great results from their students,” said Pam Conboy, lead regional president for Wells Fargo Arizona. “We congratulate Kristie Martorelli for her accomplishment and thank all Arizona teachers for their service. Our entire community benefits from their work, and we want to show our appreciation by honoring one of Arizona’s best.”

Martorelli teaches English at Thompson Ranch Elementary School in the Dysart Unified School District in El Mirage, Ariz. She has been an educator for 11 years. Martorelli earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with an ESL endorsement from Arizona State University and two master’s degrees, in education administration and curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on Language Arts from the University of Phoenix.
