Denise Cain of Beach Street recently received the 2019 Teacher of Excellence Award from State Sen. Phil Boyle during the program’s fourth annual awards ceremony on May 9.
“This award recognizes outstanding educators whose tireless advocacy, commitment and dedication often go unrecognized,” said Tim Horan, the district’s director of health, physical education, athletics, recreation, and family and consumer science. “Ms. Cain is a 33-year educator who has had a profound positive impact on her students, staff, faculty and the West Islip community. She was selected from many outstanding West Islip educators and we wish her a fulfilling retirement.”
