Teacher of the Year

Stanislaus County Teacher of the Year, Stephanie Pimentel was recently honored for accomplishments as a teacher. Below are the comments read to the audience about Mrs. Pimentel.


Selfless, compassionate, highly skilled.  These are just a few adjectives that describe teacher Stephanie Pimentel, a model educator for all to emulate.

Stephanie has taught Headstart and fifth grade for fifteen years.  She is a teacher leader who models what a true professional educator should be; an advocate for students and one who strives to ensure EVERY student meets their full potential.  She spends countless hours developing highly engaging and relevant lessons for her students.  Her room is a kaleidoscope of student work; student essays displayed, artwork, projects, science experiments and, more importantly, a goal setting section where she teaches her students to set weekly goals for self- improvement.  She has an amazing talent for inspiring EVERY student.  Her “cheerleader” style allows each student to feel encouraged and motivated under her classroom leadership.  Students who once felt beaten down and discouraged feel upheld with a renewed sense of self-worth beginning the first day in her classroom.

Stephanie sees the school community as one with no walls and no limits.  She can be seen at most every school function, night or day, helping with games, learning centers or dressed up in a fun costume to add extra enjoyment.  She believes that working with the high risk Cunningham population means students need support at all times.  Home visits are second-nature to her.  If parents are unable to meet with her, she will do whatever it takes to help them feel involved in their student’s education.

Stephanie also works to inspire the entire school community.  One way she does this is through an amazing school-wide patriotic assembly whereby all fifth grade students proudly parade their “State project floats” around the campus for all to see.   

She is an inspirational leader and strong advocate for students.  If there were ever an educator that embodies a genuine love for children and extreme passion for helping children realize their full potential, it is Stephanie Pimentel.
