2022 Stanislaus County Teachers of the Year Announced
The Modesto Rotary Club and the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) announced the selection of four local educators as 2022 Stanislaus County Teachers of the Year on May 3 at the DoubleTree Hotel. In addition, a Jane Johnston Civility Award was presented to one of the 12 finalists for exemplifying the principles of civility. "SCOE received 57 nominations from public and private school principals from throughout the county," said Jason Maggard, SCOE Chief of Staff. "A selection committee, composed of local Rotarians and educators, narrowed the nominations through a paper screening process and then visited the classrooms of 24 semi-finalists before narrowing it down to the 12 finalists. We are thrilled that we were finally able to recognize our Teacher of the Year Finalists."
The 2020-21 Teachers of the Year are Chelsea Bustos from Sinclear Elementary School, Ceres Unified School District – TK-3 division; Danelle Garcia from Dieterich Elementary School, Stanislaus Union Elementary School District – 4-6 division; Charlyn Selee from Dutcher Middle, Turlock Unified School District – junior high division; and Eli Bynum from Downey High School, Modesto City School – high school division.
The four selected as Teachers of the Year each received a $1,000 cash award from the Modesto Rotary Club Foundation. Mocse Credit Union also sponsored the event and provided funding for the awards, decorations and lunch for the student entertainers.
