“It is our sincere privilege to honor Mrs. Maria Aparicio as Palm Beach County Teacher of the Year during the April 25 Florida Panthers game,” said Yormark. “The entire Panthers organization is committed to supporting education and we are thrilled to be able to recognize one of our community’s great teachers.”



Mrs. Aparicio is a Physics Honors teacher and Advanced Placement Physics teacher at West Boca Raton Community High School and is a resident of Boca Raton. She has been a teacher for 36 years and also spends time mentoring and volunteering and has chaired the Hispanic Heritage Picnic at St. Jude Catholic Church in Boca Raton since 2004.
