Congratulations to O'Rourke Middle School health education teacher Lindsay Armbruster who was named the 2015 Eastern District Health Educator of the Year by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. The Eastern District includes CT, DE, DC, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Last November, Lindsay was named the New York State Health Teacher of the Year by the New York State Association for Health, PE, Recreation, and Dance (NYSAHPERD). This award made her eligible for the award she just received. And, because Lindsay is the Eastern District Teacher of the Year, she is now a finalist for the National Health Teacher of the Year award, which will be announced in March 2015.
Congratulations AND good luck to Mrs. Armbruster!
"The list of health and wellness initiatives that Lindsay has brought to our students and our faculty is lengthy and impressive," says Principal Colleen Wolff. "She is inspiring, both as a teacher and a health advocate."
