Teacher Appreciation

Honoring our society's unsung heroes.

CPLC's Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards provide well-deserved recognition to eight outstanding educators in Arizona every year. Learn about the 2023 winners here!

“Teaching can be a thankless job. To have someone tell you you're doing great is awesome.”

The Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards recognize the impact Latino teachers have on their students. Honorees are celebrated at an Academy Awards-style dinner and ceremony, where each receives a $3,000-$5,000 cash award plus a $2,500 stipend to their respective school. The Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards is the only awards program that highlights outstanding Latino educators throughout Arizona.
