Teachers and staff in Brandon-area schools are honored
BRANDON—Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union hosted the annual Celebration of Contribution and Commitment on Oct. 11 to recognize, honor and celebrate teachers and staff members who have made outstanding contributions and have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to excellence.
This year’s honorees included:
Distinguished teachers: Meghan Fox, Barstow Memorial School; Laura Coro, Leicester Central School; Jane Pinson, Lothrop Elementary School; Kathryn Tricarico, Neshobe Elementary School; Kathy Sherwin, Otter Valley Union High School; and Kayla Desabrais, Sudbury Country School.
Distinguished educator: Bob Soule, RNESU.
Outstanding support staff: Susan Price, Barstow Memorial School; Susan Lamay, Lothrop Elementary School; Anne Jones, Neshobe Elementary School; and Katie Mitchell, Whiting Elementary School.
In addition to the above honors, Jane Pinson was chosen as the RNESU Outstanding Teacher for grades PreK to 6, along with Kathy Sherwin as the RNESU Outstanding Teacher for High School for the 2016 UVM Teacher of the Year award.
Superintendent of schools Jeanné Collins said, “Too often, the work of teachers and support staff who go the extra mile goes unnoticed. RNESU has an excellent and dedicated faculty and staff and it is a pleasure to highlight the cream of the crop and honor them for the difference they make in the lives of students.”
RNESU is dedicated to the development of character, competence, creativity and community and would not be able to uphold this mission without individuals like those being honored this year. We thank the honorees for their continued contributions and commitment to our students and communities.
