For almost 40 years, the Ed Fund has recognized the district’s best teachers through the Teaching Excellence Awards. These educators exemplify putting students at the center of the educational experience. After the return to in-person learning in 2021, teachers have had a challenging year trying to help students cope with and recover from the pandemic. Due to these circumstances, it is more important than ever for us to celebrate the teachers within the West Contra Costa Unified School District.
We are so honored to announce our 35th cohort of awardees! See below for a few stories of this year’s winners from Nystrom Elementary, Richmond High, Michelle Obama Elementary, and Hercules Middle/High.
