King of Prussia’s Goddard Systems, Inc., franchisor of The Goddard School, the nation’s premier preschool focusing on learning through play for children six weeks to six years old, has announced its honorees for its 10th annual Teachers of the Year award.
In celebration of National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6), GSI has acknowledged more than 10,000 teachers nationwide and presents six extraordinary teachers with a plaque that commemorates their passion, dedication, and enthusiasm for early childhood education.
“The teachers that have been selected as this year’s honorees for Teacher of the Year have spearheaded long-term projects that have positively impacted the children in their classroom, their families, the Schools and the broader community,” says Dr. Craig Bach, Vice President of Education at GSI. “The Teacher of the Year recipients engage students in learning opportunities that are both unique and effective.”
Projects from the selected Goddard School educators include
- Family Game Night: designed to continue fostering Kindergarten skills outside the classroom
- Kindness Mission: guides students to understand how small acts of kindness make a big impact
- Intergenerational Project: educates children about different generations while befriending residents at an assisted-living facility
- Happy Gonzo: first involved taking care of a class pet frog, Gonzo, and later introduced engaging learning opportunities for the preschoolers
The six teachers honored are Anna Pecoraro (Elgin, IL), Pamela Gijanto and Sabrina Piotrowski (Marlboro, NJ), Christina Mruskovic (Hillsborough, NJ), and Paige Hardwick and Erika Posey (Roswell, GA).
