2022 Teacher of the Year

In March 2022, FUSD named Cabrillo Elementary’s Christy Taylor as its 2022 Teacher of the Year. Taylor has worked in FUSD since 2009 and has been a teacher for 25 years in elementary general and special education classrooms and as a reading specialist.

Each FUSD school can nominate one teacher for Teacher of the Year consideration, and from the nominations finalists are selected for a further selection process. In addition to Taylor, the 2022 finalists included Mohamed Algarmi from Centerville Junior High School, Audrey Suratos from Robertson High School, Jovana Manjabosco from Blacow Elementary, Erin Castillo from Kennedy High School, and Erica Maciel from Patterson Elementary. 

A video from the March 23 Board of Education meeting at which finalists were honored and Taylor was announced as Teacher of the Year is available here (item starts at 3:55). 

Taylor will represent FUSD at the Alameda County Teacher of the Year Awards and be considered for county-level honors, and then possibly state recognition.
