Teachers are Heroes

Presented by Azusa Pacific University San Diego Regional Campus & San Diego County Toyota Dealers

About Teachers Are Heroes
Since 2001, the Entercom San Diego stations; Sunny 98.1, KSON and FM94/9 have partnered with Azusa Pacific University San Diego Regional Campus for the 'Teachers Are Heroes' program. Listeners have told us heartfelt stories of teachers going above and beyond their jobs in creating a life-long love for learning in our children. Each school year, twelve teachers are selected by a panel of station and sponsor representatives to be recognized by the program. With the support of the San Diego County Office of Education, we visit the schools and make a presentation at an all-school assembly. The essay nomination is read aloud in front of the student body, faculty and visiting parents.

 

Azusa Pacific University San Diego Regional Campus

For our Teachers & Students

As a show of appreciation, as part of the presentation, the entire class will be awarded with a classroom pizza party, courtesy of Papa John’s.
