Teachers of the Year Recipients

Teacher & ESP of the Year

The New Jersey Teacher of the Year Program and the Governor's Teacher/Educational Services Professionals Recognition Program have been integrated into the Governor's Educator of the Year Program.  This updated program highlights educational innovation, student achievement, the rewards of teaching, and important services outside the classroom environment that lead to student success.  Further, it seeks to attract public attention to the positive aspects of our educational system.  The nomination and selection process begins at the local level with each school selecting the school’s Teacher of the Year and Educational Services Professional of the Year recipients.  Our recipients are then entered into the statewide nomination and selection process for state recognition.  It is our honor to announce the South Amboy 2019-20 Teachers of the Year and Educational Services Professionals of the Year:
