High School Science Teacher Honored at PLTW National Summit
Hendrick Hudson High School science teacher Jeanine Hall was recently recognized as a Project Lead the Way Outstanding Teacher at PLTW Summit, the organization’s national conference.
High school Principal Anthony Giovinazzi nominated Hall for the honor. “Jeanine engages and inspires her students, helping them make connections between the classroom and the medical field,” he said. “She takes the PLTW program to another level, providing her classes with guest speakers and field trips that open students’ eyes to potential college and career opportunities.”
Senior Emily Guida, a student in Hall’s Biomedical Innovations class this year, said, “Mrs. Hall’s classroom is constantly changing, as she finds new and improved ways of engaging with her students and steering towards what she sees we like and benefit the most from. I could not have had a better experience with PLTW in my high school career, due to her constant support and guidance.”
PLTW selects Outstanding Teachers through a competitive nomination process focused on how teachers empower students to thrive in a rapidly evolving world. Award-winning teachers demonstrate a strong record of delivering an inspiring and empowering student experience in the classroom, expanding access to career learning for students in the school and community, and using innovative methods to engage students in activity-, project-, problem-based learning.
Hall is teaching Principles of Biomedical Sciences and Biomedical Innovation this year. She is certified to teach all four Biomedical PLTW courses, which include Medical Interventions and Human Body Systems.
PLTW Summit is the premier gathering for the PLTW network of individuals dedicated to preparing students with the in-demand knowledge and transportable skills they need to succeed in college and beyond.
