The awards were based on the recommendations of colleagues, parents and students, and further evaluated by a select Rotary Committee.  The Committee noted the teachers' use of innovative and flexible teaching styles, their ability to motivate students, their excellent inter-personal relations with parents and their commitment to further study to enhance their own teaching skills.


The awards were made on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at the Twin Brooks Country Club, Watchung, NJ.  The awardees will each receive a $500 gift which they will use to enhance learning in their own classrooms.


The Rotary Club Foundation supports numerous world-wide and local charities.  On Monday, July 22nd, it will hold its 16th Annual Golf Classic at the Beaver Brook Country Club, Annandale.  Proceeds from the event will go to support Rotary’s local, national and international charities.
