Teacher Appreciation Celebration

The Contra Costa County Office of Education hosted the second annual Teacher Appreciation Day on Wednesday April 20, 2016 at the Pleasant Hill Community Center. Board members Christine Deane, Mike Maxwell, and Pamela Mirabella attended the celebration and expressed their gratitude for the outstanding service our certificated employees provide to students.

Special recognition was given to those teachers who will retire at the end of the 2015-16 school year. These include Joanne Lindevald who has worked for the COE as a special education teacher for 34 years; Diana Perkovich who has worked as a special education teacher for 29 years; Jennifer Simpson who has worked as a special education teacher for 11 years; and Mary Lynn Marshall who has worked as a PT jail education teacher for 9 years. All present acknowledged these teachers for the difference they have made in the lives of so many students.

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." — Carl Jung
