JCCS Teacher Recognized as Classroom Hero by SDCCU

JCCS Teacher Recognized as Classroom Hero by SDCCU

Alicia McBride, a teacher in the Cuyamaca Prep Independent Study Program, was recently honored by the San Diego County Credit Union as part of its Classroom Heroes program. 

Her colleague, Lindsay Sullivan, nominated McBride for her dedication, supportive nature, and willingness to be an advocate for the students and families she works with in the Cuyamaca Prep Independent Study Program in the Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) East Region.

McBride was surprised and grateful to receive the recognition. 

“It is always so exciting for our JCCS program to be recognized for the work we are doing. Many people have no idea that we even exist. Bringing attention to our programs means more support for our students,” she said.  

One of her students, Isaac Garcia, said he appreciates McBride for helping him get through hard times with family and getting his credits for school.

"She is an amazing teacher and I'm glad to have her in my life," he said.

McBride said the biggest rewards come from watching her students find academic success and personal growth. 

“This recognition acts as a reminder that fighting the good fight and advocating for marginalized youth is making a difference," she said.
