Teachers play an important role in our society and deserve recognition for their contributions to educating future generations. The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) provides several opportunities to celebrate teachers for their commitment to furthering the education of our youth.

Opportunities to Celebrate Teachers

Elevating and Celebrating Exceptional Teaching and Teachers (ECET²) Bay Area

ECET² Bay Area is a special event modeled after an annual national conference of teacher leaders designed to provide a forum for exceptional teachers to learn from one another and celebrate the teaching profession. 

Excellence in Education and Equity Award

The Excellence in Education and Equity Award honors one program each year that reflects the County Office’s vision of Excellence and Equity in Education and its work to close the achievement and opportunity gaps in the County.
