 Curie Elementary School Teacher Honored for Dedication to Students

Susanna Holcomb of Curie Elementary School in the San Diego Unified School District was recognized in September through San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU) Classroom Heroes, a partnership with ABC 10News and iHeartMedia, Inc. San Diego.

Holcomb, a 1st grade teacher, was described by her nominator as "'a unicorn' because there is truly no one like her. She has a unique ability to connect with students and parents. She makes learning fun for the kids and creates an environment of support and problem-solving unlike any teacher I have ever met. When situations arise, she is creative in her problem solving and approaches every situation with kindness and considerations."

SDCCU, ABC 10News and iHeartMedia are recognizing “Classroom Heroes” throughout 2018. Winning teachers will be featured on a segment on ABC 10News, receive a $500 SDCCU Visa® gift card and one 2018 winner will win a new Toyota Prius®.
