The biennial Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Teaching recognizes five classroom educators from across the United States who teach the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in diverse settings, achieve academically and work collaboratively. These educators employ research-based practices to help students: develop positive identities, exhibit empathy, consider different perspectives, think critically about injustice, and take informed action.

 This year, Danna Lomax, veteran teacher at Anacapa Middle School in Ventura SD and lecturer in the CSUCI School of Education is a 2018 Teaching Tolerance Award Winner!
