SCUSD’s Teacher of the Year celebrated at River Cats game
California Middle School teacher Jennifer Ellerman — one of two Sacramento County 2013 Teachers of the Year — was honored at Raley Field on Friday, April 26, during a special on-field ceremony prior to the Sacramento River Cats/Salt Lake Bees baseball game.
This is the sixth year that the Sacramento River Cats have recognized the Teachers of the Year.
Ellerman, who teaches seventh grade Language Arts, and Bob Crongeyer, who teaches a fifth/sixth grade GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) class at Taylor Street School in the Robla School District, each threw out ceremonial first pitches.
The Sacramento County Teachers of the Year Program is coordinated annually by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) to recognize the achievements of local educators and to raise awareness of the valuable role that teachers play in the lives of their students and in the community.
