A Fairfield-Suisun Unified teacher who likes to challenge herself and her students to excel in the classroom, especially by using technology, has been named as the 2014-15 Solano County Teacher of the Year.
Michelle Labelle-Fisch of Vacaville was accorded the honor, topping a field of six others, during a celebration Wednesday night in Suisun City. The Solano County Office of Education hosted the event, during which she received the award and $1,000, money donated by event sponsor Brandman University and contributors to the Crystal apple Partnership, to be used for classroom materials and supplies.
In addition, the county named Phillip Green, Benicia High School’s Isolated Classroom Environment Supervisor in the Benicia Unified School District, as the Classified School Employee of the Year.
