Identify the Next Teacher of the Year

Do you know an exemplary teacher? The Los Angeles County Office of Education is sponsoring the Year 2004-05 Los Angeles County Teachers of the Year program. From applications submitted to the district in July, three Long Beach Unified School District teachers of the year will be selected. Their applications will be forwarded to the county. Teachers selected by the county will compete for California Teacher of the Year and possibly National Teacher of the Year. Eligible for Teacher of the Year nomination by the Superintendent’s Office are pre-K through grade 12 teachers, library media teachers who teach with classroom teachers, adult school teachers who use the same curriculum as K-12 teachers, and instructors with administrative responsibilities if teaching is their primary responsibility. An information meeting for potential nominees will be held Monday, April 26, Room 4 at the Teacher Resource Center from 4 to 5 p.m. Teachers will receive the application forms and timeline at this meeting. To reserve a place, or to alert organizers to an outstanding teacher, call Fran Pfeiffer at 997-8000, ext. 2901.
