The 49ers and Symetra are proud to recognize the passion and dedication of the Bay Area’s educators. Each NFL season, sixteen Bay Area teachers are named Symetra Heroes in the Classroom in honor of their commitment to student achievement. Parents, students (former or current) and all school district staff are eligible to submit a nomination. Hero selection is based on the teacher’s ability to balance core curriculum with students’ individual needs, invest in their students’ long-term success, and build trust among students, parents and the community.
As part of the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom award, each teacher receives the following:
- A $1,000 donation for their school
- “Heroes” award certificate and gift bag
- Two tickets to a 49ers regular season home game
- Customized 49ers jersey and pre-game experience
Since 2011, The San Francisco 49ers and Symetra have partnered on the “Symetra Heroes in the Classroom” teacher recognition program, which celebrates outstanding educators in the Bay Area.
