"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."
-Albert Einstein
Teachers change lives every day, and even through the COVID-19 crisis, our teachers are stepping up to the plate to connect with our students and master new skills to ensure that our students continue to grow. Thank you so much, Teachers, for your endless love and dedication to our students and families.

In Board District 2, we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with our Annual Sal Castro Awards, where teachers are selected for their commitment to: leadership development of youth, civic engagement, educational and social justice, advocacy to college and career pathways. See below to see the 2020 Recipients of the Board District 2 Sal Castro Awards. Congratulations!
