NYC Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña
It is my pleasure to join you in recognizing this year’s honorees and celebrating their incredible contributions to the next generation of leaders. This is such an important opportunity to come together and celebrate the amazing work that our nation’s educators do on a daily basis. A great teacher, principal or college professor can change a student’s life forever. We all remember the one educator who opened our eyes to our passion and inspired us to pursue it.
As a lifelong educator who has spent my own life in service to children and families, I remain deeply impressed and moved by those who choose dedicate their lives to education. Teaching is by no means a simple or easy craft, and to be a good teacher, you have to be willing to go above and beyond for your student every single day. It is critical to help students reach their full potential inside the classroom, and also to help them become better people and more engaged citizens. And that is who we are celebrating tonight: 30 educators who have shown us the true meaning of public
Service and who have gone the extra mile for their students. Once again, thank you all for your tireless work and for your unending commitment to education.#
