I’m Thankful for My Teacher 2010 Highlights

Mission Fed joined efforts with Junior Achievement and Cox to host our 3rd Annual "I'm Thankful for My Teacher Because..." in November 2010. Now you can watch these video highlights from the 2010 program.

Thousands of notes, handwritten by students and parents, poured in to say thank you to teachers throughout San Diego County. In the notes, teachers were saluted for their hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile for our students and their families.

Winning teachers and students received the following prizes, compliments of Mission Fed

  • Winning teachers who received the most thank you notes received $150 Visa Gift Cards.
  • Students of the winning teachers won a classroom party or field trip of their choice.
  • Schools with the most thank you notes won a $200 School Spirit Award.
  • Students of the winning teachers also received free Junior Achievement financial education classes
    in their classroom for the school year.


Teachers do so many special things in their “mission to educate” for our local students and future generations that we were happy to create this opportunity to show appreciation.
