The Oakland Unified School District has announced its “Teachers of the Year.”
And for the first time, they’re hailing not just one or two teachers – but three of them!
All three are being honored for their leadership and innovative teaching methods.
Micaela Morse teaches Kindergarten at International Community Elementary. It’s an English-Spanish immersion program which Micaela helped design. She’s described as calm – even in the midst of unexpected chaos.
At United for Success middle school, Cassandra Chen teaches 6th-grade math and science and 8th-grade algebra. She’s applauded for pushing herself and others towards continuous improvement.
At Oakland Technical High, Jah-Yee Woo teaches 11th-grade English and U.S. History. She helped to establish a Humanities curriculum. He’s described as making her hard work appear effortless.
