Angela Quinto: 2018-2019 MARION B. KELLEY TEACHER OF THE YEAR

On Monday, June 17th, the North Adams Public Schools honored Drury High School chemistry teacher and STEM team leader, Ms. Angela Quinto, with the annual Marion B. Kelley Teacher of the Year Award in a surprise ceremony held in the library at Drury High School. This award, named in honor of the late Marion B. Kelley, a former North Adams teacher and principal, is presented to teachers in recognition of their dedicated, skillful teaching, understanding of children, and exemplification of the “ideal” teacher. Mrs. Kelley taught in the North Adams school system from 1929 until 1936 when she married and had to leave the school system because state law prohibited married women from teaching. She rejoined the school system as a teacher in 1945 and retired in 1978 as principal of Haskins and Johnson schools. Annually, a teacher is nominated for this award by fellow North Adams Public Schools’ employees and selected by the District Administration. As the recipient of the award, Ms. Quinto will receive a $100.00 gift certificate that she may use for supplies in her classroom.
