Sony Pictures Entertainment Honors CCUSD Teacher of the Year Debby Ishii

For the past 20 years Sony Pictures Entertainment has awarded the CCUSD Teacher of the Year winner with a donation of $1,000 to further their inspiring work in the classroom.

Debby Ishii, the 2018 Culver City Teacher of the Year winner, received her donation June 11 at an award ceremony at La Ballona Elementary School. And it was $2500.
