D-backs’ Goldschmidt surprises students, teacher, with visit
The Arizona Diamondbacks and star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt helped celebrate National Teachers Day by paying a visit to Edison Elementary School in Phoenix to honor second grade teacher Mrs. LaToya Jones, who was named as one of this month’s most valuable teachers.
Needless to say, everyone was excited for Goldschmidt’s visit.
Goldschmidt did not come empty-handed, however, as he also gave Jones a check for $1,000 to be used for her classroom.
Then, to cap things off, America’s First Baseman read to the students:
The Most Valuable Teacher program is run by the D-backs as part of their Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
