 Normal Heights Elementary School Teacher Named Classroom Hero

Normal Heights Elementary School (San Diego Unified School District) teacher Michael Renner was recognized in November through the San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®) Classroom Heroes program.

The parent who nominated Rinner for the program praised him, writing "Mr. Renner dove right into our lives without missing a beat, accepting us and encouraging us, as he does with everyone he meets. Mr. Renner sees the situation holistically and takes time every day to build their relationship with consistent determination and professionalism. He has always been available to us and has altered my son’s ability to accept new information, to make change and to try."
