A Rodriguez High teacher for the deaf and hearing-impaired, an educator cited for her “tireless dedication,” has been named as Solano County’s Teacher of the Year for 2020-21.
Katherine Reyes heard her name called Wednesday night during a Solano County Board of Education meeting in Fairfield, where Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson also acknowledged that Reyes was the Solano County Office of Education’s Teacher of the Year.
In a press release, Ken Scarberry, the SCOE director of youth development, noted that Reyes has worked for the county office for 12 years. Besides being the teacher for the Fairfield school’s deaf and hearing-impaired students, she currently teaches English, mathematics, directed studies, transitional, and career development.
