Nominate your favorite SFUSD teacher for Teacher of the Month

Do you know a super-human teacher who works in the San Francisco Unified School District? Of course you do.

From the beginning, 826 Valencia has been dedicated supporting these teachers. One way we do this is through our Teacher of the Month program. Once a month, we pick a teacher who has gone above and beyond for their community and give them a little special recognition and a monetary gift – we believe they deserve a parade and a gold-plated white board plus a vacation in Hawaii, but this is our little way to say thanks.

But we need you to make this happen: our Teachers of the Month are all nominated by students, parents, and colleagues. We accept nominations at any time. Here’s how to nominate the wonderful teacher you have in mind:

  • Check out the criteria.
  • Fill out this form.
  • Submit testimonials from at least one other student and one other adult. You can submit anything from letters to videos to singing telegrams. We welcome you to get as creative as possible! Instructions can be found at the link above.
  • That’s it!

Winners of the award receive a $1500 check and are highlighted on our website. Check out all the amazing accomplishments our past winners on our Teacher of the Month page, get inspired, and get nominating!
