NJ Governor's Educator of the Year and Educational Support Services Professional of the Year at Hubbard School

Dear Hubbard School Community Members,

It is with a full heart and the utmost respect that we announce the New Jersey Governor’s Educator of the Year and Educational Support Services Professional of the year for Mary A. Hubbard School.  The program is designed to highlight educational innovation, student achievement, the rewards of teaching, and important services outside the classroom environment that lead to student success. The Hubbard School Community recognizes these attributes in the daily work of Educator, Mrs. Kirsten Finnegan, Kindergarten Teacher and Educational Support Services Professional, Mrs. Nancy DiSalvo, Hubbard School Psychologist.  Both of these exceptional professionals are truly a central component of the beating heart of Mary A. Hubbard School.

Mrs. Kirsten Finnegan was recognized for her unwavering commitment to each and every student, incredible relationships with the parent community that further support student growth, mentorship of colleagues, continuously evolving level of professional knowledge and instructional practice and being the first to help out when the Hubbard School Community has a need.  Mrs. Finnegan serves in her role with complete dedication, passion, an open mind and an open heart.

Mrs. Nancy DiSalvo was recognized for always supporting the staff, students and parent community in times of crisis and need, in understanding children’s developmental potential, successes and struggles, in believing in each and every child that comes through the Hubbard School door and being a true student advocate, caring for the emotional and mental health and well being of everyone she comes into contact with and treating her role as a true calling.  Mrs. DiSalvo works to make a positive difference in the lives of each Hubbard School community member every minute of every day.

Please join me in honoring and celebrating these two wonderful professionals who help make Hubbard the wonderful place that it is.
