Middle Country Central School District’s Teachers Recognized by the NYS Master Teaching Program

 Five teachers from the Middle Country Central School District have been recognized by the New York State (NYS) Master Teaching Program. Donna D’Auria from Newfield High School, Agnieszka Taciak from Centereach High School, Preston Tucci from Selden Middle School, Alyssa Hughes from New Lane Elementary, and Ed Miller from Selden Middle School have all been recognized for their STEM teaching abilities.

The NYS Master Teacher Program network consists of outstanding teachers recognized by Governor Hochul for their dedication to providing the most innovative STEM education to their students, their commitment to professional growth, and their enthusiasm for sharing their successful practices with colleagues in their schools, districts, and regions. This year 230 teachers were recognized; all of whom serve as curriculum and department leaders or members of district and state-level committees and mentor teachers for students and early career teachers.  

“Education is what we do, to be recognized for our STEM program is a huge honor. I couldn’t be prouder of our teaching staff,” said Dr. Roberta Gerold, Superintendent of Schools.
