Way to Go, Mrs. Zellmer!

Mrs. Zellmer has done it again! Not only has she been named Dwyer's Teacher of the Year and Huntington Beach City School District Teacher of the Year, she was surprised on Thursday to find out that she is an Orange County Teacher of the Year!


A media crew snuck onto Dwyer's campus with Orange County Superintendent, Dr. Al Mijares, and his team, along with HBCSD Superintendent, Mr. Gregg Haulk, and our team to surprise Mrs. Zellmer while teaching her 4th period class. She was presented with a shiny apple trophy to loud cheers from her students and district officials. She will be honored at a county dinner reception in November at the Disneyland Hotel. We are so proud of her and so excited that she gets to represent Dwyer!
