The Cortopassi Family Foundation is pleased to announce its annual Excellence in Teaching Awards. The awards, which traditionally honor four outstanding public or charter high school educators in Science and Math, have expanded this year to include recognition of a teacher in an alternative or non-comprehensive high school setting.
All nominees must be full-time classroom teachers in public or charter high schools in San Joaquin County, and have at least two years teaching experience in Math, Science, or alternative education. The nominations must be submitted by their current principals.
Each recipient will receive $5000 in cash from the Cortopassi Family Foundation and each of their schools will also receive $5000, to be used for program enhancements in their respective departments.
Nomination forms and informational packets can be downloaded at sjcoe.org/resource/cortopassi.aspx, or go to the SJCOE website and click on the Quick Links tab. The nomination deadline is January 31st and the recipients will be honored at an awards ceremony and dinner on April 11th at the Stockton Golf and Country Club.
