Department and School Representatives

Departmental representatives serve as links between the Academy and the academic departments:

  • They meet periodically with their department chairs to learn how the Academy can best serve the needs of all educators in the School.
  • They also meet with other Academy members in their departments to discover and implement ways to honor and support teachers.
  • Membership applicants are encouraged to contact one of these individuals for more information about the Academy and for help in preparing their Educator's Portfolio.
  • In addition, trained Academy application coaches are available for one-on-one guidance.

If your department is not listed or you would like a formal referral to an Academy application coach, please contact Kathleen Land at 415-514-9259 or All academy members may be searched by department in our Membership Directory.
