Educator of the Year

Here at Shasta College, we believe in recognizing and honoring our teachers because we know that great teaching lasts a lifetime.  Every May, all Shasta College employees are invited to a Teacher Appreciation Celebration event that acknowledges the contributions of ALL faculty members and their commitment to student success.  Additionally, the person nominated by the Faculty Senate to be the Educator of the Year is formally recognized.  At this event an Appreciation Board is displayed that includes many Thank You notes from students who have taken the time to write a note of appreciation to one or more of their faculty members.  This is a fun event and we hope to see you there next May!
