High school teachers who made a difference in the education of four graduating seniors were recognized for their dedication as mentors during commencement this spring. Supported by Paul Singer ’66 through the Paul Singer Family Foundation, the annual Singer Family Prizes for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching are drawn from nominations submitted by members of the graduating class in the College. This year’s recipients and their nominating students were (seated) Cristina Duarte, an English teacher at Manhattan Comprehensive Night & Day High School in New York City, who was nominated by Joseph Gray (standing); Teresa Haskiell, a mathematics teacher at James Wood High School in Winchester, Virginia, who was nominated by Brian Baker, who was also commissioned as a lieutenant in the Army through the Army ROTC program offered by the University in partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology; Allison Cain, a French teacher at Kent Denver School in Englewood, Colorado, who was nominated by Perry DeMarche; and Michael Zitolo, a physics teacher at the School of the Future in New York City, who was nominated by Hannah Parker. The students and teachers were joined by Jeffrey Runner, dean of the College (standing, center).
