Governor Andrew Cuomo created the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award to honor educators whose love of learning and dedication to teaching inspire and motivate children. This morning, representatives from Governor Cuomo’s office came to Brewster High School to present this award to Dr. Brittany Kozlenko, a Physics Teacher. Dr. Kozlenko is among six educators in the Lower Hudson Region who received this award and the only educator in Putnam County. Dr. Kozlenko is a consummate learner, loves teaching physics and robotics, and contributes to her profession. In addition to receiving an engraved plaque, Dr. Kozlenko also received a check in the amount of $5,000 to be used for her continued learning. This is a video of this morning’s presentation.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Kozlenko!  We are proud of her achievement.

Valerie Henning-Piedmonte, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
