Excellence in Teaching Awards Dinner spotlights IUSD’s top educators of 2013


Last month, more than 40 of Irvine’s brightest teaching stars were honored during the 27th annual Excellence in Teaching Awards Dinner at the Irvine Marriott.

The formal banquet, which was held on May 10 and attended by some 800 guests, was organized by the Exchange Club of Irvine in conjunction with the Irvine Teachers Association, the Irvine Company and, of course, IUSD.

Educators from each of the district’s schools, as well as a handful from special programs throughout the district, were honored as Outstanding Teacher Representatives, and the ceremony concluded with recognition for the district’s Elementary, Middle and High School Teachers of the Year, who were announced in February.

For those who couldn’t make it, we thought we’d share the special video presentations for the latter honorees, Scott Bedley, Brendan McBrien and Joe Huber.
