Top Teacher and Employee Awards
Winners were announced during our Virtual Event
The 2024 results are in! Each year we ask 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.
2024 marks our 11th Annual School Heroes — Top Teachers, Top Employees and Top Leaders — of Orange County Awards and Issue. With more than 200 nominations, we were impressed as we are year after year with the caliber of teachers, employees and administrators that are clearly making the lives of our students and families so much better. We even expanded our criteria to include all kinds of education — from private and public to alternative and online schools — and the response was truly overwhelming.
All of the 2024 finalists and winners will be featured in our March Issue.
