San Diego’s finest educators were celebrated at the 25th annual “Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers” brought to you by SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution. Held in collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and Cox® Communications, the black-tie gala was a presentation of the 42nd Annual San Diego County Teacher of the Year Awards.
The event took place on Saturday, October 10 at the Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego and was broadcasted live on Cox Communications’ Channel 4. The Academy Awards-style television special highlighted the work and dedication of the county’s 26,000 public school teachers, and culminated with the announcement of the following five 2015-2016 San Diego County Teachers of the Year:
•Doug Green, Carlsbad High School (Carlsbad Unified School District)
•Armando Leon, Mar Vista Academy (Sweetwater Union High School District)
•Paul Messerle, Rancho Bernardo High (Poway Unified School District)
•Shirley Parrish Miranda, Morse High School (San Diego Unified School District)
•Janet Ratkovic Feilen, Sevick School (Cajon Valley Union School District)
The five winners will represent the County of San Diego in the California Teacher of the Year program. This year’s 44 nominees were selected by their respective districts based on student achievement, professional development and community involvement, teaching philosophy and personal style, knowledge of educational issues and trends, promotion and development of the teaching profession, accountability and ability to serve as ambassadors of education.
“We are proud to again support this outstanding event and recognize the phenomenal work of all teachers and educators for their tireless devotion to students,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “We applaud these outstanding teachers for the work they do every day to provide our students with the knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to succeed.”
