Held in collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and Cox® Communications, the black-tie gala is a presentation of the 46th Annual San Diego County Teacher of the Year Awards. SDCCU has supported this event for the past 11 years.
“SDCCU is proud to support this outstanding awards event and celebrate the phenomenal work of teachers and educators making a difference in our community,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “Teachers are critical in shaping the future of today’s youth and we applaud each of the nominees for the work they do each day to give students the knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to succeed.”
The event will take place on Saturday, September 7 at the Balboa Theatre, located at 868 4th Ave. in downtown San Diego. The program will be broadcast live on Cox Communications’ YurView (Cox Channel 4 and 1004 in HD). The Academy Awards-style television special will highlight the hard work and dedication of the county’s more than 22,000 public school teachers and culminates with the announcement of five 2019-2020 San Diego County Teachers of the Year.
The five winners will represent the County of San Diego in the California Teacher of the Year program. This year’s nominees were selected by their respective districts based on student achievement, professional development and community involvement, teaching philosophy and personal style, knowledge of educational issues and trends, promotion and development of the teaching profession, accountability and ability to serve as ambassadors of education.
