SAN JOSE, CA – The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) has released the third volume of the 2016 edition of the Public Service Announcement (PSA) series, "Why I teach."
This edition of the PSA series features the symbiotic relationship of teaching from Santa Clara County district teachers of the year.
Victoria Lombardi from Santa Rita Elementary in Los Altos School District, describes her relationship with students, "they provide me with so much joy, they're funny, and we have a lot of laughter in the classroom but also I to continue to learn each day from the students."
This video also features Jonathan Ling from Anderson Elementary in Moreland School District and Debbie Frazier from Monta Vista High in Fremont Union High School District.
All the teachers featured in this video series were honored during the SCCOE's 2016 Teacher Recognition Celebration last fall in Campbell.
The PSAs will be rolled out every Wednesday until the end of March. Not only do they celebrate these outstanding teachers, but they are also part of an ongoing initiative to increase qualified teaching candidates. Another part of this initiative is Step into Teaching: Opportunities in Silicon Valley Public Schools on February 18. This program is designed for individuals with or who are completing their bachelor's degree, business professionals with an interest in teaching, and classified school employees looking to transition into certificated positions.
In addition to being posted to the SCCOE YouTube channel, the videos will also be provided to local cable access channels in the various municipalities throughout the county.
