DanielR.Kaplan*82MatawanHighSchool Teacher of Physics
As testimony to the depth of Daniel Kaplans mastery of physics, we refer you to his Princeton doctoral dissertation on Inelastic Scattering from X-ray Standing Waves. As testimony to the excellence of his teaching, we refer you to his students and fellow teachers at Matawan High School who call him knowledgeable, passionate, and energizing; their cheerleader. His students master the practical knowledge necessary to pass tests, to relate the laws of physics to real life and to work successfully as a team. But beyond the practical lies the magical: his ability to prove to students that physics can be beautiful and fun.
DanaH.MaloneyTenaflyHighSchool Teacher of English
The most commonly used word in Dana Maloneys vocabulary is more. She wants more from herself and took deliberate steps to grow from teacher-learner to teacher-leader. She wants more from her students who with her encouragement find they can stretch their abilities from adequate to excellent. Because for her the classroom walls at Tenafly High School are permeable, she can show her students how to step outside a literary text to put their learning into action. She teaches that literature enables us to read the world, and that lesson helps her students write their own success stories.
Enzo PaternoMiddlesexCountyAcademyforScience, MathematicsandEngineeringTechnologies TeacherofElectronicandComputerEngineering
Enzo Paterno holds three patents from his previous career, and his colleagues say he holds the patent for the curriculum at Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics and Engineering Technologies. That curriculum raises the bar by introducing more demanding courses at lower grade levels. He likens teaching to acting; the stage he sets for his students allows them to play the role of a professional engineer, introducing design reviews, presentations and teamwork. His credo is the survival of the brightest, and because of his care for his students, he insures that they not only survive but thrive.
For Victorina Wasmuth math is not a subject; its a religion. For her students at McNair Academic High School in Jersey City, who sometimes must face obstacles posed by life in the inner city, math is a way to make sense of the world, a language that explains how reason works. She shows them knowledge is power. Her teaching unlocks maths seemingly impenetrable mysteries, letting her students experience those revelatory ah-ha! moments of understanding that they call brain booms. What they learn in her classroom and from her example frees them to raise their sights exponentially.
Recognition, by Provost Christopher L. Eisgruber, of recipients of prizes for distinguished secondary school teaching in the State of New Jersey.
