A Salute to Teachers

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​COX presents A Salute to Teachers logo - brought to you by San Diego County Credit Union ​

Recognizing San Diego County Teachers!  

Since 1974, SDCOE has recognized teachers from across the region for their commitment to teaching and learning. Every year, teachers representing all 42 county districts are invited to apply for San Diego County Teacher of the Year.

For the past 29 years, SDCOE has partnered with Cox Communications to recognize all San Diego County Teacher of the Year nominees at the annual Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers, sponsored by San Diego County Credit Union. The event, held at the Balboa Theater, highlights San Diego County's more than 22,000 public school teachers and features celebrity emcees and presenters, and musical and dance performances. Five of the honorees will be named San Diego County Teachers of the Year. These five individuals will go on to represent the region at the California Teacher of the Year program.
