Two teachers will represent Twin Rivers in the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year program through the Sacramento County Office of Education.
The winning teachers took part in an intense selection process earlier this spring that included essays, classroom observations and interviews. The announcement came following an employee recognition dinner that honored districtwide classified employees of the year and teachers of the year that were nominated by their parents, students and colleagues.

We’re extremely proud of our students and staff and what they accomplish every day in the classroom. We’re also proud of the academic opportunities we provide to all students. However, our Twin Rivers neighborhood schools need basic health and safety improvements. Many of them are 50 to 80 years old with deteriorating classrooms, plumbing, leaky roofs, potentially faulty electrical systems, and aging restrooms that need to be repaired.
Let us know what your priorities are for local schools by completing the following Parent/Community Survey. Your views are important to us.
