Zucker Teacher of the Year

May 5, 2017

Congratulations to Mrs. Lugo and Mrs. Mata for being chosen this year's Zucker Teachers of the Year. They received the news at a staff breakfast Friday morning. Mrs. Lugo's family were surprise guests to the announcement. Mrs. Mata was out of town the day of the event.

Winners are chosen through a nomination process by other teachers, with finalists decided by a committee of former Zucker winners and ERHS administrators. The award is named for Natalie Zucker, a long-time Pico Rivera resident, who established the award in the early 90s. The monetary portion of the prize comes from the revenues from a trust fund that she set up for that purpose.
