The following teachers were selected by a committee of their peers--out of a phenomenal 65 nominations submitted by families, students and colleagues:
“We have so many phenomenal teachers in the Troy School District and out of all of our nominations from students, parents and colleagues, these three rose to the top,” said Superintendent Richard Machesky, Ed. D. “They each do a tremendous job of building a world class learning environment in their classrooms and it’s clear that they have a tremendous impact on those around them. Jordan, Jackie and Mina bring with them a passion for learning that they pass on to their students. We are extremely proud to have them represent the Troy School District as our Outstanding Teachers of the Year.”
Fifty-three other outstanding TSD teachers were nominated by parents, students and colleagues. Each of them was singled out for the dedication and commitment they show every day for their profession. All nominees, all of whom will be honored at a Board of Education meeting in April include:
Jordan Holsbeke, Martell Elementary
Jaclynn Parker, Larson Middle School
Mina Mori, Athens & Troy High Schools
Paige Camillo, TSD Preschool
This year, we received a record number of nominations, representing multiple job classifications, schools and grade levels. Please join us in congratulating the following outstanding nominees, all of whom will be honored with a special reception and Board recognition in May. For the first time in TSD history, the selection committee could not choose just one winner, so we celebrate we are honoring two outstanding individuals.
