South Orangetown Central School District

Cottage Lane Elementary School fourth-grade teacher Claire Eckert and South Orangetown Middle School sixth-grade math teacher Kathleen Lacker are among educators across the region recognized with Hudson Valley Magazine Teacher Appreciation Awards! Honorees were nominated by readers for making a difference in the Hudson Valley and “doing all they can to shape education in an unprecedented time.” Read the Hudson Valley Magazine story here.

“Claire and Kathleen have brought great distinction to our school district and are role models for us all,” noted Superintendent of Schools Robert R. Pritchard, Ed.D. “Well done!”

Congratulations to Ms. Eckert and Ms. Lacker and thank you to the families who nominated them for their work!
