ALBION – Albion Central Schools is pleased to announce the Educator of the Year Award has been presented to secretaries and teacher aides throughout the district.

To say this year has been challenging would be an understatement. For many, the ongoing pandemic brought with it a lot of anxiety, the fear of the unknown, and uncertainty for our students, their families and our staff.

While many schools across the nation closed, Albion was able to remain open. Our aides and secretaries stepped up, without hesitation, time and time again. Every day they have gone above and beyond to provide a sense of normalcy in abnormal circumstances, creating a safe and positive learning environment for our students and staff while balancing their regular duties, ensuring that the district continues to run smoothly.

At the end of the day, when we think of our Albion value statements and what they represent, we think of these incredible individuals.

Our 2020-2021 Educators of the Year are Stacey Andrews, Dawn Brower, Christine Capstick, Amy Castricone, Rachel Coolbaugh, Cassandra Dash, Karen Dibley, Sue Dick, Beth Dunn, Kristin Ferris, Elisha Hill, Cindy Ishmael, Deborah Jones, Linda Lewis, Renee Liberti, Nancy Lowery, Laura Marek, Sarah McCormick, Sue Ann McGaffick, Katie McGaffick, Terri Monacelli, Nancy Moore, Tammy Neal, Julie Norman, Pam Sargent, Laura Simboli, Christina Snook, Diane Stirk, Jessica Tracy, Lisa Tucker, Sue Webster, Sarah Williams, Tosha Williams, and Betsy Wolcott.

Thank you all for your dedication to our students, staff and community.
