South Shore Teachers Recognized During Education Week

A pair of South Shore residents are among a number of teachers being recognized for their work with students. Julie Ramey of North Queens Community School and Krystal Snyder of New Germany Elementary will each receive awards as part of Education Week. This year's theme is Active Citizenship: Get Involved, Take Action, Be the Difference! It recognizes outstanding educators who integrate active citizenship into their daily lessons. Ramey leads the Social Justice group at North Queens, and provided opportunities for her students to participate in 'We Day' in Halifax, a fundraising effort to build a school in Mexico, and hosted a 30-hour Famine event at their school. Snyder is a primary teacher in New Germany and has developed skills to teach young students about responsible citizenship and how to contribute to the community. A ceremony will be held in Bedford Tuesday afternoon.
