On Monday, June 4, the 2018 Blackboard Awards For Teachers, presented by New York Family, honored 15 of the city’s finest teachers in a special ceremony at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). John Hurley, the publisher of New York Family, Jonathan Moore, the president of Family Media, and Mia Weber, the executive editor of New York Family hosted the event. The event was sponsored in part by Manhattan Media, New York Family, NYIT, Smart City Kids, the United Federation of Teachers, and TF Cornerstone.
The Blackboard Awards honor excellence in local education in all sectors (public, private, charter, and parochial), and all grade levels (nursery through high school). The annual schools and principals’ ceremony is in the fall, and the annual teachers’ ceremony is in the spring. Parents are welcome and encouraged to nominate their beloved schools and educators, and we typically hear from several thousand local families in the course of the year. We also have a board of advisors made up of experts in local education who make recommendations as well.
