Suisun Elementary teach wins “Oscars of Teaching” honor – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Suisun Elementary teacher Jessica Villanueva gasped, then placed her hands on her cheeks, her eyes widening when she heard her name announced during a morning school assembly, its purpose known only to a handful of people who gathered Friday in the gymnasium at the Golden Eye Way campus in Suisun City.

Clearly surprised and shocked, her feelings perhaps mixed with elation and humility, Villanueva was named the recipient of a Milken Educator Award, an excellence-in-teaching honor that comes with a $25,000 check from the Milken Family Foundation in Santa Monica. She is the first Fairfield-Suisun Unified teacher to receive the award, dubbed some years ago as the “Oscars of Teaching” by Teacher magazine.
