In the United Way’s first Inspirational Teacher Awards, 25 LA Unified “teachers to watch,” will be honored this evening at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, with Mayor Eric Garcetti and Superintendent John Deasy expected to attend.
The United Way staff and a panel of district teachers chose the recipients from a pool of nearly 200 nominees. Bianca Sanchez, a first grade teacher at RFK Community schools and chair of the selection board, said that teachers aren’t often recognized within their profession.
“This event is intended to not only honor those who are already doing amazing work, but also to promote the profession so that it continues to attract great talent,” Sanchez said in press release from United Way.
