On Monday, June 8, the 2015 the Blackboard Awards For Teachers honored 15 of the finest educators in the city at a special ceremony at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) Auditorium on Broadway. Jennifer Senior, a New York magazine contributing editor and the author of All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood, was the emcee. In addition to NYIT, the sponsors included the United Federation Of Teachers (UFT), the Yorkville Youth Athletic Association, and Amtrak.
