A Golden Apple for Landing School Teacher

Congratulations to Landing Elementary School third-grade teacher Nicole Mazza who is a recipient of the March of Dimes Golden Apple Award. The award is presented to teachers who go above and beyond their day-to-day responsibilities to make a difference in the lives of their students and school community. Landing School Principal Dr. Michael Israel, a past recipient of the award, is seen here congratulating Ms. Mazza as she displays the Golden Apple. Now in her sixth year as a teacher in the district, Ms. Mazza is one of only 10 educators on Long Island honored to receive the award this year. She attributes her efforts to instill technology and incorporate many hands-on activities into the daily classroom lessons as factors in this recognition.
