Each year, the Deer Valley Education Foundation holds an extensive nomination, application, and interview process to choose the DVUSD Teachers of the Year. On January 26th, February 9th, and February 23rd at 6.30PM a different group of 2019-2020 Teachers of the Year and Rookies of the Year will be recognized at each meeting (see below to see which teachers will be recognized on each date).

As a result of social distancing, only Principals and family member of each awardee are able to attend in person, but these award ceremonies are live-streamed and can be viewed at https://livestream.com/dvusd/events/9501814 and look for meeting date (please be patient through the blue screens during the presentation).

Thanks to the following sponsors, each teacher receives a trophy and a check for $500:

Discover Financial
McCarthy Building Companies
Valley Schools
Chasse Building Team
Gary and Diana Feldman on behalf of Jonah Feldman

As you see the slides this evening, please be aware that some of the photos were taken before the pandemic.
