The law firm of Burch & Cracchiolo, P.A. announced  the kick-off of the “B&C Star Teachers Award” program. A Valley teacher will be chosen each month to receive $500 through a nominating process on the firm’s website Nominations will be accepted from students, former students and parents who wish to honor and thank a teacher who has had a great impact on their life. Many teachers spend their own money to augment the costs of classroom supplies, field trips and other non-covered costs that arise throughout the school year.  B&C hopes to alleviate that burden for one deserving teacher each month.

“Inspired by our long history of giving back to our community, Burch & Cracchiolo will begin honoring teachers in our state with the “B&C Star Teachers Award. Teachers educate and inspire our children every day by their commitment and caring,” says Firm president Andy Abraham.  “Educators have played a huge role in the lives of our attorneys and staff so this is a natural fit for our Firm,” continued Abraham.

Nominations are open to all teachers in K-12 who teach in Maricopa County. Winners will be notified and then presented a check at their school by a member of Burch & Cracchiolo.   Photos and/or video will be taken to post on the firm website and social media.  To nominate go to, click on the “Nominate a B&C Star Teacher” button and tell us why you think your teacher deserves the B&C Star Teachers Award.
