Governor's Educator of the Year Program

As part of the New Jersey Department of Education Governor's Educator of the Year Program, each school in the Orange Township Public School District completed the process to select a Teacher of the Year and an Educational Support Staff Member of the Year.

On January 17, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gerald Fitzhugh, II and Executive Director of Human Resources, Ms. Shebra Jones Dismuke, visited all thirteen schools to make a special presentation to the district's nominees. Accompanied by the school principal and assistant principals, they surprised selected staff members, announcing their nomination and presenting each with a certificate and balloons congratulating them for being chosen for the governor's program.

On February 25, at Orange Preparatory Academy, the nominees will again be recognized and celebrated in a public forum at the monthly District Recognition Program.
