49ers EDU and CFP Foundation Come Together to Celebrate Bay Area Teachers for 'The Big Day'
To honor and celebrate their incredible work, 49ers EDU and The College Football Playoff Foundation (CFP) teamed up to honor three deserving Bay Area educators. On Monday, September 14th teachers across the country were surprised with $1,000 Donor Choose grants as a part of The Big Day. Each teacher was nominated by a fellow educator who saw them go above and beyond this past year for their students and community. As schools across the Bay Area closed for in-person learning, these three teachers have gone above and beyond in finding ways to keep their students engaged and learning throughout COVID-19.
The three recipients were: Patti Jenkins (Scott Lane Elementary), Peter Wang (San Francisco International High School), and Shaylah Ellis (Skyline High School).
