The Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year program is one of the oldest and most prestigious honors contests in the U.S. for public school teachers. Each year it features an annual luncheon recognition where the teachers of the year from each district are honored for their dedication, compelling classroom practices, positive accomplishments and professional commitment.
