Teaching Excellence Award Winners Announced Virtually This Year

For more than 30 years, the Ed Fund has recognized the county’s best teachers through the Teaching Excellence Awards. These educators exemplify putting students at the center of the educational experience. With the shift to distance learning due to COVID-19, the challenges to giving our students the best educational experience have made it more necessary to support and acknowledge the work our teachers do in West Contra Costa Unified School District.

We are excited to honor our 38th cohort of Teaching Excellence Award winners! To select this year’s teachers, we focused our attention on how teachers addressed the COVID-19 pandemic, the social unrest many of our students are experiencing, and how they created inclusive classroom environments online.

We received teacher nominations from across the district and after classroom "visits" and teacher interviews, the Ed Fund, in collaboration with WCCUSD, selected four teachers, who will be announced via social media starting Tuesday and concluding on Friday.
