David Schrenzel, 2017 alumnus of UCI's 14-month Master of Arts in Teaching+ Credential program (MAT), is one of four teachers recognized by the Irvine Unified School District as a "Teacher of Promise."
The annual Teacher of Promise honor goes to first- or second-year instructors, who go above and beyond, while demonstrating professional curiosity and an unbridled enthusiasm for teaching. One teacher is recognized for high school, one for middle school, and two for the elementary level.
David was feted as the Middle School Teacher of Promise at IUSD's 33rd annual Excellence in Teaching Awards.
David, who teaches mathematics at Plaza Vista School, comes from a family of educators.
