Lawrence Public Schools Sharin Rello Selected as 2017-2018 Mercer County Teacher of the Year

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) announced on September 12, 2017 that Sharin Rello, Lawrence Intermediate School (LIS) music teacher, is the "2017-2018 Mercer County Teacher of the Year." This prestigious award qualifies her for consideration for the State Teacher of the Year, along with teachers from the 20 other counties throughout the state.

In addition to affording opportunities for this group of honored teachers to network with educators throughout the state and county, the NJDOE will count on this group to take valuable resources and materials directly from the Department to local districts.  At the same time, the teachers will be invited to serve on state committees and task forces to share their own experiences and points of view at the state level.

Ms. Rello has taught in Lawrence Township Public Schools for 13 years.  She is the tenth Lawrence educator to be named Mercer County Teacher of the Year within the past 24 years.

County Teachers of the Year are first selected as Teachers of the Year at the school level through the Governor's Educator of the Year program. They then compete for county recognition and are selected by panels representing a cross-section of administrators, teachers, parents, and county education association representatives convened by the Department's Executive County Superintendents.

"I am thrilled to be able to honor our amazing County Teachers of the Year for 2017-18, and express my appreciation for the work they do for their students," said Education Commissioner Kimberley Harrington. "New Jersey has many great teachers, and this award is a tribute to the talent, professionalism, and dedication of these 21 educators to inspire the children they teach.  I look forward to learning more from them in the months to come."

Superintendent Crystal Edwards related, "We are thrilled that Sharin Rello was chosen as Mercer County Teacher of the Year.  She exemplifies not only the qualities of an extremely talented educator, but also the daily commitment, dedication and inspiration it takes to help a child achieve and exceed his or her potential. Additionally Sharin is a key element in our district's once again being named a Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation."

Cindy Westhead, LIS principal, shared, "It is a pleasure to observe the work of Sharin Rello! She is a dedicated music teacher who instills a love and appreciation of music in all of her students. Sharin continually finds ways of enhancing our music programs through her creative plans and dynamic ideas. She finds ways of making sure to be all inclusive of our school community. We appreciate her enthusiasm and love of learning!"
