On Thursday evening this week, Ellen Kaiser received the 2018 Berkshire County Educator Recognition Award at MCLA. She was named Teacher of the Year in the grades 7 – 12 category. Ellen’s gracious and eloquent remarks as she accepted the award acknowledged a school community – colleagues, student and families – that supports and celebrates education. She recognized that her success is directly connected to working in such a place.
Later on Thursday night, Mount Greylock learned that Jeff Welch was named the winner of the James C. Kapteyn Prize for Excellence in Teaching. This prize is awarded to a single nominee from teachers throughout Western MA, Northern Connecticut and Eastern New York State in public, private, and parochial schools. It is a very prestigious award.
Thursday was a very good night for Mount Greylock.
