​​Teacher of the Year​

Each year, the Placer County Office of Education honors three Teachers of the Year through a process that highlights educational innovation, student learning and the rewards of teaching. Further, the program highlights the positive aspects of our educational system.

The nominees are interviewed by a county selection committee and are then eligible to participate in the state program facilitated by the California Department of Education. Learn more about the statewide program at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/sr/ct/.
