Educator 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 active region will be honored locally. Each regional winner will subsequently be honored at the CLS Spring Conference, in Monterey, CA. 


One regional winner at each level will be announced as CLS State Educator of the Year. Nominees may be teachers, administrators, counselors, or other certificated personnel.
