 Kate Sessions Elementary Teacher Honored for Dedication to Students

Kate Sessions Elementary School (San Diego Unified School District) kindergarten teacher Jeff Corley was recognized in October through the San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®) Classroom Heroes program.

The parent who nominated him for the program praised Corley, writing " Instead of seeing a child who can be difficult and giving up on him, he saw my son. He saw his intelligence, his quirks, his strengths and even made an effort to learn his triggers and he is helping to make school a wonderful place for my child. I can only imagine the level of dedication that he has to each of his students. I could not be more grateful to this educator if I tried."

SDCCU®, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, proudly honors local teachers through SDCCU Classroom Heroes, launched in partnership with ABC 10News and iHeartMedia, Inc. San Diego. 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®.
