During this Teacher Appreciation Week, some Connecticut science teachers are being recognized for their commitment to excellence in their schools.
An awards dinner was held in their honor Wednesday evening at the New Haven Lawn Club.
One of the award winners says her student’s success in science makes her want to cry.
Toni-Anne Rock, a 6th grade science teacher at Depaolo Middle School said, “When a student goes, ‘oh my gosh, I got it’. Or ‘I want to be a meteorologist now’, I’m so happy for them.”
The awards dinner is sponsored by the Connecticut Science Teachers Association and the Connecticut Science Supervisors Association.
