Project Lead the Way (PLTW) has recognized Hendrick Hudson High School teacher Jeanine Hall as the PLTW Biomedical Science Teacher of the Year -- the highest recognition given to the program’s Biomedical Science educators.

PLTW President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Vince Bertram presented Hall with the prestigious award last month, in front of an audience of nearly 1,000 teachers from across the country during PLTW’s national conference in Indianapolis.

Approximately 11,500 elementary, middle, and high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia offer PLTW programs that empower students to develop in-demand, transportable knowledge and skills through pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.

"I can remember when we started our Biomedical program here at Hendrick Hudson High School many years ago and were lucky to secure Jeanine to get the program off the ground,” said Principal James Mackin. “Jeanine's efforts have garnered the high school local, state and national recognition. It is only fitting that she is receiving the recognition she deserves."

The award is based on merit and is a reflection of Hall’s strong alignment to PLTW’s mission; exceptional commitment to students; school leadership; and meaningful involvement in PLTW curriculum, assessment, and professional development.

“We are proud to work with outstanding educators across the country who are inspiring and empowering our students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills,” Dr. Bertram said. “Jeanine Hall is an exemplary teacher, and we are proud to recognize her for her commitment to students.”

Project Lead the Way is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers across the country. The program’s teacher training and resources support educators as they engage their students in real-world learning.
