The biggest way to honor the legacy of the GUHSDtech and FutureForward programs is to continue to bring an Innovator’s Mindset and a risk-taking spirit to your teaching journey. Continue to learn with and from each other. GUHSD teachers have taught 1:1 longer than most San Diego County districts and have been set up with a reputation of deeply dedicated teachers leveraging cutting-edge tools and practices.

We achieved this mission via our core values:
