Board Recognizes Superhero Teachers

Board Recognizes Superhero Teachers thumbnail97402

As part of an annual Celebrating Success Employee Recognition tradition that is hosted during the final board of education meeting of the school year, the district honored eight outstanding teachers.

The program featured each school’s principal recognizing a faculty member, who epitomizes excellence and a commitment to their craft. Each month, a theme was assigned to each school, and an exceptional teacher who exemplifies that theme was selected. At the meeting, honorees were first celebrated with speeches about them delivered by each principal, and then presented with a celebratory plaque by board president Michael Pomerico.

The tradition is designed to give the district another opportunity to honor the dedication and hard work of its remarkable teachers.

This year’s honorees are: Maureen Bonanno, Angela Dickens, Kiesha Hayes, Robin Newberg, Sherrie Papayanopoulos, Jessica Polikoff, Matthew Tetenbaum and Lisa Zabala.
