Today, we invite you to be a part of our effort to recognize the very best teachers in Long Beach.
Ten teachers will be selected based on nominations that you make - simply leave your nomination in the Comments section below! The top ten list will ultimately be determined by our editorial board and a team of committed posters.
Long Beach is home to one of the most reputable public school districts in the nation, two successful charter schools, a network of private and parochial institutions, a community college that is an integral part of our local economy and a nationally ranked public university. Think about your experience with a special teacher, the experience of your child at a local school, and leave a nomination below.
Last year we introduced the original feature on the best teachers in Long Beach. More than 75 students, parents, fellow teachers and community leaders responded, and now it's time to ask the question again:
Who are Long Beach’s Best Teachers?
Today, we begin nominations for our second annual contest. The top ten list will be announced on Monday, May 11, 2009.
