Celebration of Teaching

Each year at SJSU, the Lurie College of Education hosts the Celebration of Teaching. During the Spring 2020 semester, we asked local middle school teachers, high school teachers, community college faculty, and SJSU faculty to nominate students that have the qualities that would make them an outstanding future educator. Congratulations to the 64 nominees who have been recognized and awarded with a $1000 scholarship towards any Lurie College credential program - watch the video above to learn about our awardees!
