We’ve all heard the expression “teachers who change lives.” Well, you don’t have to look far to find one in Santa Clarita. Valencia High School’s AP Psychology teacher, Tiffany Bernier, recently received a “Claes Nobel Educator of the Year Award” by the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS).
Ms. Bernier began her career at a junior high school in Stevenson Ranch. Ms. Bernier dedicates her career to enriching academic proficiency in special education students. She does this through collaborating with other teachers to remediate course curriculum.

Additionally, she serves as a faculty advisor for numerous clubs, including Operation Rainbow and an LGBTQ+ organization, named Quiltbag.
NSHSS established the Claes Nobel Educator of the Year Award to spotlight the achievements of the most outstanding educators in the United States.
