2022 Educators of the Year

The CLS Educator of the Year award is given annually to California elementary, middle, and high school educators who exemplify educational excellence. Up to 10 finalists from each region will be honored locally. The nominee selected to represent each region will subsequently be honored at CLS Conferences. At these conferences, one of the nominees at each level will be announced as CLS State Educator of the Year. Nominees may be teachers, administrators, counselors, or other certificated personnel.
