MHS & District Teacher of the Year
During the past two weeks we’ve featured each school’s Teacher of the Year and last on the list is Josh Curzan of Manchester High, who was also chosen as the district Teacher of the Year for the 23-24 academic year. Here’s some of what MHS Principal Katelyn Miner had to say about Josh:
“Josh has shown tremendous commitment to the Freshman Center at MHS by working to ensure that students in grade 9 have a positive transition to high school. He knows that relationships are at the heart of education and his students confirm his commitment to seeing each of them as individuals, with their own strengths, talents and goals. Josh said that he strives to ensure that all students are ‘seen, heard, and understood in his class, and that they see themselves, their families and their backgrounds represented.’ In addition to his work as a Social Studies teacher Josh has worked with the Young Men's Leadership Group, West Indian Club and currently serves as a MEA Building Representative and on the MHS Equity Team. He has been important to our learning alongside the RISE Network for the past several years as we have focused on Freshman Success. He designed and currently teaches the African-American History course and is committed to students learning about themselves as learners. Thank you Josh for your commitment to MHS and our students."
