Two Santee Teachers were honored at Legoland on Saturday, June 6, during the seventh annual “Teachers Are Heroes” award ceremonies.  The awards are sponsored by Lincoln Financial Media, the San Diego County Office of Education, and Azusa Pacific University.  Teachers from Oceanside to Chula Vista and from San Diego to El Cajon gathered with dozens of cheering students and parents as representatives from the sponsoring organizations introduced the honorees.

Heather Glanz, 4th Grade GATE teacher at Rio Seco School, and Jim Williams, 5th Grade GATE teacher at Cajon Park School, along with 10 other local teachers,  were each nominated for their work with students, as were hundereds of others throughout the county.  All of the nominating essays were read by representatives from Azusa Pacific, who then chose the teachers they felt were most deserving.  Ms. Glanz’s nominating essay said, “She will help the earth, the state, and maybe even the whole galaxy.  She will even help you.”  The writer of Mr. Williams’ nominating essay told how “He inspires creativity and teamwork among the students and encourages them to be accepting of new ideas and different view points.”
