Grinspoon 2017 Award Winners

Each year, the Superintendent has the pleasure of acknowledging some of our highly dedicated and motivated teachers with the Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Award, commonly known as the "Grinspoon Award" in honor of its founder, Harold Grinspoon.

This year, Greenfield had three award winners - two veteran teachers and one who is in their first two years of teaching.

To be eligible, teachers had to demonstrate remarkable classroom performance, excellent attendance, benefit to the school community above and beyond the classroom, evaluations of proficient or exemplary, and the endorsement of their principal. All three of our award winners did just that, and were surprised in their classroom on February 28th with the awards!

A banquet will be held at the Log Cabin on April 27 for the honored teachers, principals, and invited guests.

This year's award winners are: Award for a New Teacher: Stacey Quinn, Art Teacher, Newton School

Veteran Teachers: Rachel Cummings, Science Teacher, GMS Jackie Pinger, Grade 4 Teacher, Discovery School at Four Corners

Please join us in celebrating our teachers!
