Buffs Honor Teachers Through CFP Foundation Extra Yard For Teachers

BOULDER--The University of Colorado will honor teachers and educational staff this week as part of the College Football Playoff Foundation Extra Yard for Teachers program.

Extra Yard for Teachers is the CFP Foundation's primary platform and is dedicated to elevating the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers in four core areas: resources, recognition, professional development, and recruitment and retention.

"We know every day is game day for teachers," Executive Director of the CFP Foundation Britton Banowky said. "Extra Yard for Teachers represents a coming together of college football to show its appreciation for teachers."

The teachers the Buffs will honor are Sara Nelson from University Hill Elementary, Andrew Moore from BVSD IT Services, and Ann Cooper and Carolyn Villa from BVSD Food Services.
