Teachers of the Year


Sue Bertram

The Chapter recognizes outstanding (grades K- 12) teachers from the local Sacramento area and recognizes teachers who have continually demonstrated teaching accomplishments and instructing students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Chapter 116 selected two 2011 Teacher of the Year in March 2010 and the teachers were formally recognized in the April awards banquet. The chapter winner was also the winner of additional recognition and award money at the State of California Air force Association’s Banquet in June at Vandenberg AFB.

Each school principal should select their teacher of the year that may qualify for the award, work with them now to insure they meet all the necessary requirements and assist them in submitting the application.
