HANNIBAL – With a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, Hannibal Central School District teacher Emily Glasser recently earned the distinction of “Promising New Professional.”
The award was presented by the Central New York Association of Family & Consumer Sciences Education and recognizes educators who have been teaching for less than eight years and have shown tremendous dedication and professionalism in their field of work.
For Glasser, a family and consumer science teacher at Dennis M. Kenney Middle School, her commitment to her students has not gone unnoticed.
According to a press release from the Central New York Association of Family & Consumer Sciences Education, Glasser “has certainly brought a breath of fresh air” to her classroom.
“She is collaborating with a variety of other disciplines and works closely with other departments,” the release stated. “In her two years at Hannibal she has secured a grant to build and maintain a greenhouse garden, (has taught) a joint lesson on composting and has also helped other teachers navigate today’s newest classroom technologies.”
Glasser is a SUNY Oneonta graduate and is currently working to earn her master’s degree from her alma mater.
The Hannibal Central School District Board of Education will recognize Glasser’s accomplishment during an upcoming board meeting.
