Teachers of Year Honored

One works with special needs students, the other with at-risk students. Anthony Goss works for the Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Whitney Weddell for Nueva Continuation High School. They are two teachers dedicated to quality education. But they are more. Goss and Weddell were honored as the cream of the crop of their chosen profession -- selected as the 2006-07 Kern County Teachers of the Year during a reception ceremony at the Kern County Museum on May 16. Another deserving educator, Karen Reyes, a kindergarten teacher at Princeton Street School in Delano was named alternate. Goss and Weddell will now represent the county in the California Teacher of the Year competition. The California Department of Education (CDE) sponsors the annual California Teacher of the Year program. The three were among 34 county teachers who had been nominated for the honor by their schools and districts. More
