FUHSD is incredibly excited to announce that Kavita Gupta of Monta Vista High School has been chosen as the first ever recipient of the National Geographic Gilbert M. Grosvenor Educator of the Year award!
The Gilbert M. Grosvenor Educator of the Year Award was created to honor an educator for exceptional achievement in education focusing on exploration, science and conservation in their work, and is named after the National Geographic Society’s former president and chairman of the board of trustees who also served as Editor of the National Geographic Magazine for many years. National Geographic shared that Kavita was chosen for her dynamic teaching style, which engages students through innovative, technology-rich and student-centered curricula.
Kavita will be honored at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C. this June. Read more on the National Geographic website.
Congratulations to superstar Cupertino High School teacher Sean Bui, selected as the Fremont Union High School District Teacher of the Year for 2019!
Sean was chosen for this honor because he strives to create a supportive and inclusive culture on the CHS campus, whether that means designing activities to help ELD students feel more at home or working with struggling students to relieve stress and have fun. His colleagues say he has a bubbly personality, demonstrates joy in the teaching profession and is a positive force for good in the world.
Each year, the Santa Clara County Office of Education recognizes an exceptional teacher from each of the more than 30 school districts in the county at the annual Teacher Recognition Celebration. This Fall, Sean will be honored and celebrated by his family, friends and colleagues as our district’s Teacher of the Year at the 50th Annual Teacher Recognition Celebration.
