The following is from the Matawan Regional School District:
Matawan-Aberdeen Regional Schools Superintendent David Healy and the Board of Educationare proud to announce this year’s school Teachers of the Year.
The district is participating for the first time in the New Jersey Department of Education program, which highlights “educational innovation, student learning, and the rewards of teaching” (NJDOE).
Information from nominations submitted by families and staff was collated into a rubric using state guidelines, and the staff member with the top score became the school-level winner. These outstanding professionals will be recognized in building and district events, and will submit applications for the district Teacher of the Year (February). That individual will be eligible for County Teacherof the Year (April). The county will also have a luncheon for all school Teachers of the Year.
