Two teachers at Niskayuna HS win educational excellence award

During homeroom and first period this morning at Niskayuna High School, two outstanding teachers were surprised with bouquets of balloons carried by their colleagues, students, and school administrators. Though the surprise presentation is tradition with the Murray Award for Excellence in Education, which is in its 11th year, Laura Favata, a math teacher, and Meghan Miller, who teaches Latin, were taken completely by surprise. The Murray Award is administered through the Niskayuna Community Foundation and includes $2,500 for each teacher to use for the professional development of her choice.
