SAN JOSE, CA – In the fifth volume of the 2017 edition of the Public Service Announcement (PSA) series "Why I Teach," Kurt Cheetsos of Metropolitan Education District, Cindy Parico of Mount Pleasant School District, and Heidi Morris of Saratoga Union School District share the merits of their profession.
"I believe, one child at a time, I am helping the future," says Morris.
This PSA series produced by the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) features Santa Clara County District Teachers of the Year who were honored during the 2017 Teacher Recognition Celebration in Campbell last fall. The video testimonials are designed to celebrate the accomplishments of some of the county's best teachers and inspire future teachers.
A new episode of "Why I Teach" will be released weekly until through March. 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.
