Cathy Ahearn at Laguna Middle School is named SLO County's Teacher of the Year

San Luis Coastal middle school teacher Cathy Ahearn has been selected as the Teacher of the Year for San Luis Obispo County.

Ahearn received the news during a surprise visit at Laguna Middle School where her parents accompanied Principal Diane Frost and district administrators to present her with a bouquet commemorating her distinction.

She was previously named Teacher of the Year for San Luis Coastal Unified School District, and her name was then submitted to the County Office of Education for consideration along with candidates from the other school districts in the county.
