Sato Teacher is Educator of the Year

Sato Teacher is Educator of Year

January 26, 2017


Sato Academy of Mathematics and Science teacher Lenny Perez has earned a regional Educator of the Year Award and will advance to the state level of recognition.

Each year the California League of High Schools and California League of Middle Schools recognize 22 educators representing regions throughout California.  Honorees exemplify educational excellence and have made significant efforts to implement elements of educational reform in middle and high schools.

“It feels great, but it’s a little embarrassing to be singled out when it’s such a group effort,” Perez said.  “It validates our work, and I couldn’t have done it without supportive administration and a supportive district.”

Perez is a master teacher for Project Lead the Way, a leading science, technology, engineering and math curriculum.  He advises the Society of Women Engineers chapter at Sato, and has been instrumental in arranging visits to local manufacturers so that students can see engineering principles at work.  He also is arranging visits by Sato engineering students to local elementary schools next month, when students will engage in engineering design activities together.

Sato Academy Principal Mona Merlo nominated Perez, who was then chosen to represent Region 11 as Educator of the Year.  Region 11 includes Los Angeles County cities east of the 110 Freeway and south of the 60 Freeway, excluding Los Angeles Unified and Compton district schools.  Nominees may be teachers, administrators, counselors, or other certificated personnel.

Perez teaches introduction to engineering design, as well as a course on digital electronics.  He will attend a Feb. 24 to 26 state conference in Sacramento, where he will join honorees from the other 10 regions and find out who will be the statewide Educator of the Year.  Learn more on League of Schools.
