Scotch Plains Teacher Wins Award

SCOTCH PLAINS—Teacher Barbara Dellanno of Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS).

A role model to pupils, Dellanno was nominated by senior James Lubin for outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the classroom.

Each year, student members of the NSHSS have the opportunity to nominate the educator who had made the most significant contribution to their academic career.  The Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award recognizes teacher role models who have made a lasting difference in their classroom by encouraging students to strive for excellence.

“Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation,” said NSHSS President James Lewis.  “We’re excited to provide an ongoing means to do so, and we encourage our members to nominate teachers who have contributed to their academic success.”

Dellanno, the Humanities Curriculum Specialist and English teacher, recently celebrated 25 years of teaching at Union Catholic. She resides in Edison with her husband Ralph Dellanno, their son Paul, a student at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and her son Mark, a junior in high school.
