Celebrating New Master Teachers

Three educators – Minnesauke Elementary School STEM teacher Sean Dowling and Ward Melville High School chemistry teachers Samantha Chereb Bradshaw and James Dornicik from the Three Village Central School District – have been recognized as New York State STEM Master Teachers. 

Mr. Dowling is the first district elementary school teacher selected for this honor, as this is a new aspect of the program and only eight teachers on Long Island have received this honor. 

The New York State Master Teacher program is a competitive program and only selects veteran educators who demonstrate a commitment to student achievement, promote STEM inside and outside the classroom, seek out professional development opportunities and work with colleagues to improve STEM instruction.

“Education is the cornerstone to success, and it is the brilliant, dedicated teachers in New York who make a difference in countless lives and inspire the leaders of tomorrow,” Governor Cuomo said. “Congratulations to the newest members of the Master Teacher program, who will join the ranks of the top educators in the state as they work to further their skills and their impact on students in every corner of this great state.”
