The Mid-Hudson School Study Council (MHSSC) recently
announced Ellen Nutters as a 2016 recipient of the
Teaching Excellence Award. Ms. Nutters, a 26-year veteran of
the Monticello Central School District is an English teacher
at MHS and is known throughout the district for her
enthusiasm, innovation and dedication to her students.
“She has a deep understanding that the best key we can give our students is the knowledge that they can be, and should be, life-long learners,” Superintendent of Schools Tammy Mangus said. “She demonstrates this through her words, her lessons and her own life – leading by example.”
Ms. Nutters commitment extends far beyond her classroom instruction time. She serves as an advisor for the To Be Heard (TBH) program and the step team. She is also heavily involved with the debate team as well as the Academy of Finance, and has been involved in countless research committees. As a Monticello resident, she has cultivated deep ties within the community over the years, and often knows each students’ entire extended family.
"Mrs. Nutters is a spirited woman who has had such a huge positive impact on the Monticello students and staff and we are grateful for her commitment," said MHS Assistant Principal Virginia Morse.
The MHSSC awards dinner will be held on April 27, 2016 from 6:00 – 9:15 p.m. in the Hudson Auditorium at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, New York.
Congratulations, Mrs. Nutters! We applaud you for being greater than the average!
