Congratulations Donna Luft of Madroña - CVUSD’s March 2021 Teacher of the Month!

A lifelong learner and first grade teacher at Madroña Elementary School, Donna Luft is bursting with creativity and charm. Her exuberance makes a lasting, positive impact on her students, their families and her coworkers. She is a thoughtful, dedicated, and highly professional problem-solver and we and the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce are proud to recognize Ms. Luft as our Conejo Valley Unified School District -  March 2021 Teacher of the Month!

An educator at Madroña Elementary School for more than two decades, Ms. Luft excels in her ability to identify and meet the diverse needs of students. She is quick to recognize and praise student achievement in the classroom and to communicate the successes to families in weekly or daily reports. She also does not shy away from diplomatic conversations and relays information to families with sensitivity regarding student improvement goals.

She truly leads by example and motivates others by investing time, talents and efforts to create outstanding lesson plans. This includes engaging her students with colorful slide presentations and videos to teach phonics to the “Smarties in Smartville” with the assistance of a unique co-teacher - Marley, the puppet!

She takes pleasure in the enthusiastic attitude that characterizes the learners at the elementary level, cherishing the chance to instill leadership qualities in her students early on, coupled with a growth mindset mentality.

On Tuesday, March 23rd the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce, and the Conejo Valley Unified School District surprised Ms. Luft with the March 2021 Teacher of the Month recognition during a virtual staff meeting. Jeanne Valentine, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, presented Ms. Luft with a “virtual commemorative plaque” (a plaque will be delivered to Ms. Luft). Thank you Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce for your continued partnership for the Teacher of the Month Recognition program. Congratulations Ms. Luft!
