Hartsdale Teacher Earns Extra Mile Award
Hartsdale, NY - Woodlands Middle School Social Studies teacher Charles Fritz was recently awarded the Greenburgh Central 7 Extra Mile Award for going above and beyond his normal responsibilities to help his students.Fritz’ nomination stated that he has “taken teaching to another level, going above and beyond the call of duty.” In the specific instance cited in his nomination, Fritz helped turn around the failing grades of one student by working closely with him – encouraging him and building his confidence -- until the student achieved a 95 in the subject and now loves school.
“Mr. Fritz has been a positive and wonderful model for our kids, teaching them not to give up and showing them that although they are presently failing, they can do better with hard work, discipline and a teacher who is willing to go the extra mile to see that this is accomplished,” said the nomination, which was submitted to the Extra Mile committee by the boy’s mother.
In addition to the award, Fritz recently won a Teacher's Fellowship through The Society of Cincinnati, which will publish his lesson plans on their website and will fund a week-long teaching seminar in Washington D.C. Fritz will have access to the director of the museum of the American Revolution as well as their archives for research.
The Extra Mile award is presented by the superintendent and the Board of Education. The award was created to recognize individuals, who go the “extra mile” for the students of the district and for excellence in education.
