Faculty Member Supriya Wheat Recognized by Academy for Teachers

Supriya Wheat, Gr. 7 Science faculty member, was invited to participate in "A Three-Day Master Class on the Hudson River Valley: Art, History, Ecology," hosted by The Academy for Teachers and led by New-York Historical Society director emerita Linda Ferber, University of Connecticut professor Christopher Clark, and Bard College professor Eli Dueker. 
Teachers selected for Academy for Teachers master classes show passion for their subjects, creativity in their classrooms, and devotion to their students.

“These teachers are exceptional,” said Sam Swope, president of The Academy for Teachers. “We only invite 18 teachers to each class, so being selected is a well-deserved honor for both teacher and school.” 

"Supriya brings enthusiasm for science, wide-ranging knowledge, and deep creativity to her classrooms, engaging our students and encouraging them to think critically about issues affecting the world," said Amani Reed, Head of School at TSC. "This honor is very deserved and we are proud to celebrate Supriya's participation."

The Academy's master classes bring outstanding teachers together with leading experts, intellectuals, and artists for a day of high-level instruction and inspiration, enabling teachers to return to their classrooms re-energized. New York City’s great institutions host the classes, joining The Academy for Teachers in proclaiming that teachers deserve the time and attention of our culture’s best and brightest.
