English teacher Ron Baer has been nominated for the Teacher of the Year award given each year by the Encino Chamber of Commerce.

“I’m extremely honored to be nominated for this award,” Baer said.

The Encino Chamber of Commerce is an organization located in Tarzana whose mission is to promote and advance businesses and support networking among the community. They also host a variety of community events such as Encino Chamber Bowling Tournament, Installation Gala and also the 25th annual Teacher of the Year Awards.

The awards ceremony will be held on April 25 at the Hilton in Woodland Hills from five to eight p.m. All 19 nominees for the award will be there to commemorate this significant achievement for their incredible teaching skills and ability.

This will be Daniel Pearl Magnet High School’s fourth teacher to be nominated for this honor in recent years: Music teacher Jackie Gorski in 2013, English teacher Leah Pevar in 2017, journalism teacher and advisor for The Pearl Post and Prestige Yearbook Adriana Chavira in 2018 and now Baer in 2019. Last year, the Encino Chamber named Chavira Teacher of the Year.

“I feel very proud,” Principal Deb Smith said. “I think it brings positive attention to what we’re doing here.”

In addition to teaching English, Baer also coaches DPMHS’ Get Lit poetry team which competes every year in the Get Lit Classic Slam.

“The best and hardest and best part about teaching is remembering to always be aware of what’s around you and how as a community we can grow,” Baer said.
