A Santa Clara County tradition for over 50 years, the Teacher Recognition Celebration is the oldest and largest celebration of teachers in California and the most prestigious local award given to classroom teachers.
Every fall, the Teacher Recognition Celebration honors the county's finest teachers, each selected by their respective school districts. The SCCOE celebrations are made possible with the generous support of community partners.
Teacher Recognition is celebrated with these objectives in mind:
to increase public awareness of the efforts and contributions of teachers and their role in helping our youth to succeed in the world
to show appreciation for their many fine educational achievements
to acknowledge the many years of training that teachers undertake
to prepare for and stay current in their profession; and
to strengthen ties between students and teachers and bring about a greater understanding between generations
