OSSINING, N.Y. -- The National School Boards Association’s Technology Leadership Network honored Ossining English teacher Adam Schoenbart as one of its "20 to Watch" educators for 2016.
“I'm honored to have been selected by the NSBA and am incredibly proud of the work we are doing in Ossining,” said Schoenbart, an Ossining High School teacher since 2010.
He has also been an instructional technology coach since 2015.
Teachers such as Schoenbart were chosen for their “ability to inspire colleagues to explore and embrace innovative technology solutions and instructional strategies,” according to the Technology Leadership Network.
In a statement about the honorees, the National School Boards Association lauded Schoenbart for the passion he brings to his work.
“His vision of a 24/7 learning model includes flipped and blended classrooms, greater collaboration between students and faculty and, most recently, an opportunity for 18 classes to pilot Google Expeditions,” said The National School Boards Association.
Schoenbart received a Pioneer Award from the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center for innovative usage of Google Apps for Education.
The NSBA will recognize the honorees during the 2016 Consortium for School Networking Conference in Washington, as well as the National School Board Association's annual conference.
