2022 Placer County Teacher of the Year: Craig Rowe, THS

Congratulations to Mr. Rowe, 2023 CA Teacher of the Year Finalist & 2022 Placer County High School Teacher of the Year

We are thrilled to celebrate Craig Rowe, a Truckee High School English teacher, who was selected as a finalist in the statewide California Teacher of the Year program. This is a tremendous honor that he shares with only 15 teachers in the entire state. Mr. Rowe is an enthusiastic and revered teacher who creates daily opportunities to inspire, prepare and empower his students for college, career, and a purposeful life. His unconventional use of music, diverse content, and thought-provoking conversation invites learners to engage in complex ideas in a supportive environment. We couldn’t be more proud of Mr. Rowe for this incredible accomplishment and are delighted he’s being recognized for his extraordinary daily work. Congrats!
