Jeff Quittman, of the Orinda Academy, was recently named one of three recipients of $10,000 awards from the Warren W. Eukel Teacher Trust. The award recognizes teachers for their work in Contra Costa County schools.
Quittman started teaching at the Orinda Academy 23 years ago and has been teaching the subjects of history, civics and economics ever since.
Quittman and the other two recipients received their awards at a special dinner tonight.
The Warren W. Eukel Teacher Trust was started to remember the work Eukel did during his many years on the Walnut Creek School Board. For more information on the trust, visit http://www.eukelteachertrust.org.
