Not every kid gets that education is important to him or her today in anticipation of a lifetime of learning and achieving. If I can foster a love of learning by packaging it with loving to be in my classroom one hour a day, with letting them be a part of my life and my being part of their lives, I have truly fulfilled my role as a teacher. --Chuck Leming
All honorees received a cash award of $380, a commemorative crystal bowl engraved with their name, $70 of school supplies from Office Depot, a $25 gift certificate to Lakeshore Learning Materials and a family membership to the East Bay Regional Park District.
