Green Meadow Elementary School 5th grade teacher Sue Schreck was selected as a NYS Master Teacher last month. As part of the program, Mrs. Schreck will participate in professional development and attend leadership workshops over the next four years.
The Master Teacher Program was launched in 2013 in partnership with The State University of New York and Math for America to “strengthen our nation’s K-12 STEM education.”
“I am thrilled and very proud (to be selected as a NYS Master Teacher),” Mrs. Schreck said.
Mrs. Schreck began teaching in the East Greenbush Central School District in 2011 and has been at Green Meadow since 2013. Even as an experienced educator, she is most excited about the professional development opportunities she will have through this program and how that can benefit her students.
“You always have to be learning,” said Mrs. Schreck. “You always have to be looking for new ways to reach your students because the students are changing. Even before the pandemic, every year you get a new group of students and those students are going to have different needs.”
Mrs. Schreck is the fifth teacher from the East Greenbush Central School District to be selected as a NYS Master Teacher (Diana Prout, Jessica Hladik, Heidi Gleason, Tom Ross).
