MƒA Sloan Award Winners 2019

In the News | December 13, 2019

Each year the Fund for the City of New York honors New York City public high school teachers with the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics. This prestigious award recognizes creative mathematics and science teachers who achieve superb results and inspire young people to pursue careers in mathematics and science.

This year, we congratulate seven MƒA Master Teachers who’ve received this honor: 


Aida Rosenbaum, The Bronx Latin School 



Jared Fox, Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School



Lisa San Martin, The Queens School of Inquiry



Lori Bodner, Brooklyn Technical High School



Rachel Mancini, Tottenville High School



Robin Norwich, Bayside High School



Zach Korzyk, Manhattan Village Academy


MƒA teachers, both past and present, have been celebrated as extraordinary STEM teachers in New York City public high schools through the Sloan Award over the years. To qualify, teachers must demonstrate excellence in teaching mathematics or science in city high schools for at least five years.

The winners were chosen by a panel of scientists, mathematicians, and educators, and they received a $5,000 award as well as $2,500 for their schools’ science or math departments. The winners were honored at an awards ceremony on December 11.
