Parent Caroline Elliot nominated Krista Diaz and Lori Grannis
of Valentine Elementary in San Marino. 

I’d like to nominate my son’s Kindergarten teachers – Krista Diaz and Lori Grannis – for Teacher of the Year.  These two ladies have been job-sharing this position for over 10 years and they do a phenomenal job providing an engaging and stimulating educational environment for very young and extremely energetic children at Valentine Elementary in San Marino.  They raise funds for their classroom and tirelessly solicit parent participation both for hours assisting in the classroom and for resource donations for the classroom.  In addition to the standard offerings, they incorporate singing, videos, and nature into their curriculum to keep learning fun and relevant.
