TELL Awards Honor Region’s Outstanding Educators

The LHRIC presented two teachers, a credit recovery facilitator, a technology director and two assistant superintendents with this year’s TELL Awards.

The May 12 ceremony recognized the award-winners for their work in transforming education and student learning, and lauded them for their leadership capabilities.

Formerly known as the Pioneer Awards, the well-respected accolades are the LHRIC’s way of saluting outstanding teachers and administrators in the region who go out of their way to advance student success through their innovative use of technology.

Three separate awards were handed out at the event, which was held at the Edith Macy Conference Center in Briarcliff Manor. They included:

Outstanding Innovative Teacher Award - Brandon Milonovich, a math/computer science teacher at Ardsley High School, who was lauded for his ability to go from traditional instructor to that of learning facilitator; Laura Crowley, a credit recovery facilitator at White Plains High School, who works each and every day to make a difference in the lives of high school students who are in danger of failing school; and Susan Wallace, a fifth-grade teacher at the Main Street School in Irvington, who has managed to turn out independent, self-motivated students thanks to her endless enthusiasm and energy for teaching and learning.

Outstanding Innovative Leader Award – Dr. Andrew Taylor, Director of Technology/CIO, Byram Hills School District, for his efforts to move the district toward innovative technology integration, including a forward-thinking STEAM curriculum; Dr. Stephen Garcia, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Personnel in the Pelham School District, for spearheading an ambitious MakerSpaces initiative throughout the district.

Outstanding Innovative Partner Award – Dr. Joseph Mosey, Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services in the Peekskill School District, for launching a series of Twitter chat sessions centered around an array of instructional technology topics.

The half-day event also included a keynote presentation from Kentucky educator and technology integration specialist Donnie Piercey.

“This is an especially exciting day for us,” said Sarah Martabano, manager of the LHRIC’s Instructional Technology Department. “It is also an opportunity for us to recognize those among you who have inspired innovation in a way that makes them stand out.”
