Held in collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and Cox® Communications, the black-tie gala is a presentation of the 43rd Annual San Diego County Teacher of the Year Awards. SDCCU has supported this program for the past eight years.
“SDCCU is proud to support this special event, honoring the great work of all teachers and their dedication to enhancing the future of our youth. We applaud all of San Diego’s exceptional educators for their hard work and devotion to providing students with the knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to succeed,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 10 at the Balboa Theatre, located at 868 4th Ave. in downtown San Diego. The program will be broadcast live on Cox Communications’ Channel 4.

The five winners will represent the County of San Diego in the California Teacher of the Year program.
