Nominate a Teacher or Teaching Assistant


Nominate a Teacher OR Teacher’s Assistant for a 2019-2020 Teachers Are Heroes Award!

See the Teachers Are Heroes home page and our recently awarded teachers.

The Azusa Pacific University “Teachers are Heroes Award” recognizes San Diego County Public & Private Elementary School teachers for their exceptional service and dedication. This individual should motivate and challenge their students both in and outside the classroom. Further, your nominated teacher should be respected by their students, fellow teachers / colleagues and parents. 

Share your thoughts on how the teacher you’re nominating displays inspiration, enthusiasm, service or teaching qualities that deserve to be recognized with our Teachers Are Heroes Award. 

If your teacher is selected, he or she will receive a plaque, a gift card for supplies for their classroom AND the class will receive a classroom lunch party sometime during the school year. Additionally, the class will be invited to an end-of-year teacher celebration at LEGOLAND California Resort!

In addition to honoring 12 Teachers for the school year, we will also be recognizing Teacher’s Assistants. If you know a Teacher’s Assistant that has gone above and beyond the call of duty in their classroom, please submit their nomination below and be sure to indicate that they are a Teacher’s Assistant on the nomination form. They could also win a classroom lunch as well as special recognition.
