Venice Paparazzi was on the scene at the Venice Wave Awards on May 11.  View event photo highlights below!

On Thursday, May 11th the 7th Annual WAVE Awards were held at The Coffee Connection.   More than 100 people came together to honor  exceptional teachers from 13  participating local schools and art institutions at a gala dinner ceremony.  Honorees were selected by their peers and hosted at the event. After an introduction by their principal, each teacher was given an opportunity to speak, infrequently leaving a dry eye in the house. This was an incredibly heartfelt evening, giving shape to the community that continues to grow with our children; where teachers are recognized for their spectacular contributions, both in and out of the classroom, inspiring generations of passionate, kind leaders and visionary thinkers.

Here is a message from Ecole Claire Fontaine’s and Venice Chamber of Commerce‘s Education Committee Chair Joelle Dumas.

The  WAVE Award ceremony was an exceptional evening and constructive event bringing together our leaders in education.  Listening to the awardees speeches was captivating and moving for all who attended.  Thank you from the Education Committee, Chamber of Commerce, Teachers, and Community Schools for all who generously donated.  Teacher appreciation certificates were warmly provided by representatives from Mike Bonin, Autumn Burke, Ted Lieu and Steve Zimmer’s offices.   The sparkle of our greatest teachers is invaluable; thank you for keeping the flame alive.  With them we learn that anything is possible.
