This week’s Teacher of the Week is Gloria Carrillo, a 4th grade teacher in San Francisco.

Carrillo teaches at Claire Lilienthal Elementary.

Her principal calls her the most dedicated teacher she’s ever come across in 20 years. 

Carrillo is the first to arrive – every day by 6:30 a.m. and often one of the last teachers to leave.

She’s described as having high standards for her students – she believes in them – and does ‘not’ accept excuses.

Carrillo is a leader on campus in many ways and this semester is supporting a student teacher in her classroom.

She’s also working closely with one of the new fourth grade teachers – she’s there to help everybody.
