The Sacramento County Teachers of the Year program recognizes excellence in teaching within the county’s schools. Participating districts nominate individual teachers to receive this special recognition. The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) also nominates one of its teachers to compete. At the Teachers of the Year awards recognition dinner, two teachers are identified as the Sacramento County Teachers of the Year and are then eligible to participate in the statewide program.
All of the school districts within the Sacramento County, local charter schools, and SCOE, are invited to participate in the program each year. The process culminates with a September awards dinner where all district nominees are introduced by students or former students, and the nominees themselves address a crowd of more than 300 people.
