SAN DIEGO – Teachers from across the region, including two from the Fallbrook/Bonsall area, will be honored for their commitment to teaching and learning at the 26th annual “Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers”, Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Balboa Theatre.
The nominee for the Bonsall Unified School District is Allison Slattery of Bonsall West Elementary School and the nominee for the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District is Amy Schwenke of Fallbrook Street School.
The Academy Awards-style extravaganza recognizes the county’s 26,000 public school teachers and features notable emcees and presenters, musical and dance performances.
The 43 nominees for 2016-17 San Diego County Teacher of the Year were selected by their respective school districts. Of those, five will be named County Teacher of the Year and will go on to represent the region at the California Teacher of the Year program later this year.
The top five teachers are selected 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 their ability to serve as ambassadors of education.
The show will also air live on Channel 4. For ticket information, visit www.sandiegotheatres.org/a-salute-to-teachers, or call 570-1100 (all San Diego area codes). For more information about the show, visit www.sdcoe.net/salute.
