2011 Excellence in Education Award winners
On October 19, over 325 educators and community members gathered at the Visalia Convention Center to honor the nominees, finalists and winners in the 17th Annual Excellence in Education Awards program. The Teacher of the Year, Administrator of the Year and School Employee of the Year were selected by a committee that reviewed the nominations in April. County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak congratulated Teacher of the Year Richard Lambie, a physical education teacher/coach at Granite Hills High School in Porterville; School Employee of the Year Teresa Sharley, the Child Welfare & Attendance Officer for Tulare City School District; and Administrator of the Year Sue Ann Hillman, the recently retired Director of Curriculum for Tulare City School District.
