Kenilworth Public Schools is very proud to announce that one of its own will represent Union County as County Teacher of the Year. Janice Marsili is a David Brearley Middle-High School art teacher who has been with the district for over 19 years.

At a recent recognition ceremony, Education Commissioner David Hespe stated, “I’m pleased to congratulate all of our County Teachers of the Year for 2015-16. I consider this award a tribute to the talent, dedication, professionalism and success of these educators. They not only inspire the children they teach, they inspire us all.”

Brearley High School Principal Brian Luciani referred to Marsili as “The epitome of class and dedication representing our community school and students.” Dr. Scott Taylor, superintendent of the Kenilworth School District called Marsili’s honor, “Recognition that is no surprise to [Marsili’s] colleagues. Janice has transformed the way the community thinks about the contributions art can make to our world.”

County Teachers of the Year are first selected at the school level through the Governor’s Educator of the Year program. They then go on to compete at the county level and are selected by panels representing a cross-section of administrators, teachers, parents, and county education association representatives convened by the NJ Department of Education’s executive county superintendents.
