On Saturday, November 11, 2017, the Carlston Family Foundation hosts the 2017 Outstanding Outstanding Teachers of America Awards at the Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley, California. Five exceptional California high school teachers will be nominated by former students who believed their former teacher made a significant impact on their lives, both personally and academically.
The stories of how each of these teachers affected the lives and futures of their former students were powerful and clearly illustrated how teachers make a difference in the lives of their students. Each of the nominating students expressed their gratitude for the belief their teacher had in them and that in their classrooms failure was never an option. Without their former teachers, none of these students would have had the skills to be successful in higher education and become young professionals.
