Kristen Magyar Recognized as NYSCATE 2020 Outstanding Teacher
Kristen Magyar has been recognized as a NYSCATE 2020 Outstanding Teacher. She has been instrumental in supporting our teachers, families and students during our transition to remote learning. Prior to the pandemic, she developed and taught STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art and Media) classes for students in grades Pre-K - 6th grade. Five years ago she began the development of the STREAM program and it continuously expanded to include new and emerging technologies. As a result, students at all grade levels learn how to code, conduct research, and create multi-media presentations to showcase their work. When we had to pivot to an emergency remote learning environment last March, Kristen immediately changed her role and became an instructional technology coach to support her elementary colleagues in the new learning environment. She scheduled 1:1 consultations and small group learning opportunities with the teachers and families. Her commitment to our learning communithy has allowed us to meet the needs of our families during this challenging time. We appreciate her grace, hard-work and compassion!
