With over 200 nominations, we are gearing up for our 10th Annual School Heroes—Top Teacher, Top Employees, and Top Leaders—of 2023 awards and issue. We asked you our readers to submit nominations for those educators, employees, and administrators that consistently go above and beyond the call of duty. Those who innovate, dare to make a change at their schools. Those who inspire students and other staff members to reach their full potential. Those who meet education challenges head-on.
Orange County is fortunate enough to have so many extraordinary schools. This year we’ve extended our reach to all forms of education—from private and public, to alternative and online schools—and the response was overwhelming.
Thank you, principals, school heads, and district officials for spreading the word. Thank you, parents, peers, and students for sending in nominations. Thank you to our judges for carefully reviewing each essay submitted.
The finalists are listed in our February issue and the Top Teacher, Top Employee, and Leadership Award winner of Orange County will be honored in our Our School Heroes Issue in March. More details about our virtual event announcing each teacher, employee, and leader are below.
