At the Teacher of the Year Recognition Ceremony on May 8, the 2017-18 Site Teachers of the Year were recognized for their outstanding work and dedication on behalf of the students of Fontana. From this exceptional group of teachers, Joseph Bremgartner, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources, announced FUSD's 2018 District Teacher of the Year, Theresa Pearce, Third Grade Teacher at Shadow Hills Elementary School.

"Ms. Pearce has 18 years of teaching experience in the Fontana Unified School District," said Mr. Bremgartner. "She is a graduate of Bringham Young University where she obtained her Bachelor's Degree and National University where she obtained her Master's Degree."
