Teacher Created Materials, an educational publisher located in Orange County, took another opportunity to celebrate educators by participating as the Presenting Sponsor of California State University Fullerton’s Honor an Educator program at the annual event on April 17th.
By helping to recognize educators who truly make a difference in the classroom, Teacher Created Materials reinforces its vision “to create a world in which children love to learn.” An annual event, the Honor an Educator program awards honorees who have gone above and beyond in their contributions to education.
“We are proud to be a part of the University’s program and we applaud the pursuit of excellence in education by these deserving recipients” says Deanne Mendoza, Co-Owner of Teacher Created Materials. “As a company, we realize the dedication and hard work these honorees have given to teaching and learning. We too are committed to making a difference in the classroom in any way possible.” Teacher Created Materials presented two nominees this year: including Isabel Perez and Lorrie McConnell.
Isabel Perez began her career as an elementary teacher in 1998 and eventually helped to open a new school in 2012 in south Los Angeles—Dr. Lawrence H. Moore Math, Science, and Technology Academy—where she is serving as principal. She has demonstrated her dedication to education by creating a positive learning environment resulting in exceptional student attendance and a resounding 86% of parents and students expressing that they feel welcome and “happy.”
Lorrie McConnell is a Professional Development Specialist in Moreno Valley Unified school district and has dedicated over 25 years to the profession to educate future generations. She was honored as Moreno Valley Unified’s Teacher of the Year in 2015. With a focus on inserting best practices into instruction, Lorrie has been described by her colleagues as “passionate,” “positive,” and “someone who displays excellence on purpose.”
In its 11th year, the Honor an Educator program began in 2006 by California State University Fullerton with the intent to highlight and honor educators and their achievements as well as to provide College of Education students with scholarships. This year, the event took place at the Titan Student Union with a preceding reception hosted by Teacher Created Materials.
