Princeton University honored four outstanding New Jersey secondary school teachers at Commencement on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

This year’s honorees are Peter Drozd of Union City High School, Emily Rock of Oakcrest High School in Mays Landing, Colleen Tambuscio of New Milford High School and Cory Terry of Ocean City Intermediate School.

The teachers were selected for the award based on nominations from public and private schools around the state. The teachers will each receive $5,000, as well as $3,000 for their school libraries.

“The four we honor with this award are truly extraordinary. A teacher’s presence and work have a special impact on the school community that transcends the classroom," said Christopher Campisano, director of Princeton’s Office of the Dean of the College, Program in Teacher Preparation, which administers the award program.
