On Monday, June 2, the 2014 Blackboard Awards For Teachers honored 15 of the finest educators in the city at a special ceremony at Scholastic’s headquarters in Manhattan. Dana Points, the Editor-in-Chief of Parents and American Baby magazines, was the emcee, and Manhattan Borough President Gayle Brewer also took part in the celebration. In addition to Scholastic, the sponsors included the United Federation Of Teachers (UFT), the City University of New York (CUNY), Yorkville Youth Athletic Association, The New School, and School Search Solutions, a division of the School Choice Group.
The longest-running and most prestigious celebration of excellence in local education, the Blackboard Awards honors educators and schools from all sectors (public, private, charter, and parochial) and grade levels (nursery through high school). The ceremony for schools and principals takes place in early winter.
