The historic Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego was the setting for the 29th Annual Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers brought to you by San Diego County Credit Union. The black-tie, Academy Awards-style event honoring the county’s 22,000 public school teachers was held on September 7th.
San Diego County school districts nominated 42 of their best and brightest teachers to compete for the County Teacher of the Year award. Five new County Teachers of the Year were announced during the live awards show. These five will go on to compete for State and National Teacher of the Year honors.
This year’s Salute was hosted by Dennis Morgigno and Delana Bennett and featured musical and dance performances by local students and video packages highlighting the nominated teachers. The show was telecast live in HD on YurView California, and will be replayed at the following times:
