Recognizing Our Outstanding Employees

June 2022

Each year we host a celebration to announce our Employees of the Year, honor our retirees, and recognize our staff members that have reached a milestone in their career at our district. 

This year, we were grateful to be able to return to our traditional in-person celebration giving us the opportunity to show our appreciation face-to-face with our outstanding employees who go above and beyond for our district. 

Employees of the Year

Congratulations to Classified Employee of the Year, Linda Pfeifer, School Secretary Peterson Middle School; Certificated Employee of the Year, Claudia Lopez, Special Ed Teacher at Westwood Elementary School; and Administrator of the Year, Pamela Galano, Principal at Wilson High School.

We thank you for your tremendous efforts to support our students, families, and our community.  Stay tuned for more information about our Employees of the Year.

Years of Service

This year we celebrated employees who have been with our district for 20, 25, 30, 35, and as many as 40 years. Your contributions do not go unnoticed! We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to our schools and to our students over the many years you have been with SCUSD — and we look forward to many more.


Words cannot express how grateful we are for your contributions throughout your time with our district. SCUSD thanks you for your perseverance and determination to improve the lives of our students. SCUSD will miss you dearly! Wishing you a retirement that is filled with relaxation, fun, and happiness.

Please celebrate with us by watching our Employee Recognition Video below and by sharing the love for an employee with one of our eCards. You can also check out some fun highlight photos online. Stay tuned for more information about our Employees of the Year.
