Inspirational Teachers

Pathways out of poverty begin with the teachers who devote their careers to making school count for vulnerable youth.

Every year, United Way of Greater Los Angeles recognizes and celebrates 25 LAUSD educators who are wholly committed to their students, parents, schools and communities. The 25 educators we honored this year are willing to go above and beyond basic classroom instruction. They give their students every opportunity to achieve academic and extracurricular excellence.

We worked with a group of LAUSD educators to select this year’s recipients, narrowing down the list from hundreds of nominees to the 25 outstanding teachers recognized below.

United Way is committed to supporting and celebrating the teachers of Los Angeles, who work on the front lines to build the next generation of citizens and break the cycle of poverty in this city.
