Honoring the Leaders in our Classrooms for Day of the Teacher

In this important time of change and growth, the Alameda County Office of Education recognizes the essential leadership of teachers in our schools. Teachers are at the heart of our work towards positive change in schools as they lead their classrooms each day. They embody the courage needed for this transformation as they light the way for all students. 

As County Superintendent of Schools, I express my gratitude to all our ACOE teachers serving the Juvenile Court and Community Schools, Quest, and School Age Parent and Infant Programs. Thank you for your continued dedication to serving the diverse students attending our County schools. 

It takes an exceptional level of skill and commitment to help guide and support our students in the midst of the shifts in education currently underway, and you take on this challenge without hesitation. 

I am proud to congratulate this year's ACOE Teacher of the Year, Christine Rominiecki. Christine, a teacher at Butler Academic Center, is known for her passion for teaching and willingness to go out of her way to help her students. Thank you, Christine, for being an inspiration in your classroom. 

Today, and every day, we honor and cherish the difference our teachers make for our students, their families, and our community. 

Sincerely, 

Sheila Jordan
Alameda County Superintendent
