THE DISTRICT’S TEACHERS OF THE YEAR FOR 2006

Each year, three CUSD teachers are chosen from among our more than 2,200 outstanding instructors as the district’s Teachers of the Year.

A committee of teachers, parents and administrators selected them from among the 55 individual school teachers of the year who were chosen by their campus peers. more
