MRHS Teacher Receives Monmouth University-Roberts Charitable Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award
Marlboro High School Math Teacher, John Nesi is an honoree of the 2012 Monmouth University-Roberts Charitable Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award! Mr. Nesi was one of three honorees recognized at a special dinner hosted by Monmouth University President Paul G. Gaffney II.
The Monmouth University-Roberts Charitable Foundation Award was started in 2006 by Life Trustee William Roberts to acknowledge exceptional secondary school teachers who made a significant contribution to the education of current Monmouth University students. Each teacher was nominated by a Monmouth University senior student for their extraordinary teaching abilities and commitment to education. Marlboro High School graduate, Cameron Nichols nominated Mr. Nesi for the award. The selection committee included the Dean of the School of Education Lynn Romeo and Monmouth University professors and students. Mr. Nesi received an award of $1,500 and has been acknowledged at various Monmouth University events.
Mr. Nesi has been a member of the Marlboro High School faculty since 2002 and is noted by Cameron as a teacher who creates a positive classroom environment and establishes caring relationships with his students. “He knows math and shows the students that he is passionate about it. As a student in his class, I was willing to learn with undivided attention because his passion invoked my active class participation,” Cameron shared. “Mr. Nesi often told us that he believed in our abilities. Such teachers energize and encourage students to reach new heights, and this outstanding teacher has gone above and beyond to make a lasting impact on me and has encouraged me to pursue learning as a lifelong experience,” he added.
