102’s Ms. Meenan is a Big Apple Award Winner

Ms. Meenan and Chancellor Farina

The 2016 Big Apple Award recipients were chosen from a pool of more than 4,600 nominations, representing a diversity of grade levels, subject areas, and each of the five New York City boroughs. A first for out entire school district, Ms. Meenan is one of 17 teachers in NYC who received this year’s Big Apple Award.

Ms. Meenan has made incredible impact on students and families over more than a decade, and we are thrilled that her distinct brand of instruction–equal parts compassion, high expectations, and structure–is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Apparently, School Chancellor Farina thinks so too.

She paid 102 a surprise visit to present Ms. Meenan with the award, and you can see parts of her visit in this video presentation.

Congrats, Ms. Meenan!
