Two Baldwinsville Teachers Named NYS Master Teachers
Governor Andrew Cuomo has named two teachers from the Baldwinsville Central School District New York State Master Teachers.
Erin Robertson, a science teacher at Durgee Junior High School, and Kristin Zimmer, a fifth-grade teacher at McNamara Elementary School, are among the 275 teachers from around the state announced as Master Teachers on October 2, 2018.
The New York State Master Teacher Program was established in 2013 by Governor Cuomo to identify, reward, and support teachers who teach math, technology, robotics, coding, engineering and science in New York State. This is the first year that teachers of grades K-6 have been included in the program.
Master Teachers engage in peer mentoring and intensive content-oriented professional development opportunities and work closely with pre-service and early career teachers.
