ENFIELD — Superintendent Amanda Isabelle is proud to share that a teacher at Enfield Village School has been selected as Special Education Teacher of the Year by the New Hampshire chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children.
Stacy Hyjek, who has taught at Enfield Village School for 25 years, was recognized at the CEC Winter Conference on March 17.
CEC-NH honors one teacher each year in grades PreK-8 and 9-12. The award recognizes exemplary performance as a special education teacher, innovativeness, imagination, creativity, and ability to inspire.
“I am both humbled and honored by this award; I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing students and parents, and an incredible team,” Hyjek said. “This recognition is a reflection of everyone’s hard work.”
Hyjek holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Castleton University, with a concentration in reading instruction. She earned a master’s degree in special education from Western Michigan University, with a concentration/certification in specific learning disabilities.
“Stacy is the best! She is an exceptional teacher who makes us all better at serving students just by being around her,” said Chris Beeso, Director of Special Education.
“As a district, we are incredibly proud of Stacy for receiving this well-deserved honor,” Superintendent Isabelle said. “This award may be for this year, but Stacy has made a profound difference in the lives of exceptional children at Enfield Village School for a generation.”
