Superintendent Dr. Gregory Franklin announced the 2017 Teachers of the Year today at Heritage Elementary STEAM Magnet School. School Board President Jonathan Abelove, Board member Francine Scinto, District administrators and members of the Tustin Public Schools Foundation also participated in the "surprise" visit.

In a unique twist, this year’s announcement for the two teachers was made at the same time and same school.  Chris and his student video crew were at Heritage videotaping Elizabeth for the Foundation’s Teacher of the Year video to be shown at the awards dinner.


Elizabeth and Chris will represent the Tustin Unified School District in the Orange County Teachers of the Year Program.


These two teachers and all school site nominees will be recognized at the Tustin Public Schools Foundation’s 23rd annual Teacher of the Year Dinner at 5 p.m. Friday, May 19, at the Irvine Marriott Hotel. Please see attached list.
