Roslyn High School teacher Mark Carman has been selected as the 2023 Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Association High School Mathematics Teacher of the Year. His accomplishments as a math educator will be honored at the association’s annual spring reception on May 11 at Salvatore’s of Elmont.
“Your contributions to our profession are truly impressive and worthy of recognition,” Gabriella Gizzi, Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Association’s chairperson of the Teacher of the Year Committee, said. “It is our sincere hope that the talent and creativity you have brought to your own classroom will continue to be channeled, in part, to helping NCMTA’s programs build better math teachers across the county.”
“Mark is truly a once-in-a-lifetime teacher. He embodies all that is great in mathematics education in our world,” Roslyn High School Principal Scott Andrews said. “Most importantly, Mark combines his love of math with his ability to connect with all students on a personal level. He has a keen skill of making mathematics practical and enjoyable for his students.”
“Mr. Carman was my math teacher for two years and to say he only taught me math would not do him justice,” student Isabella Schiff said. “He taught me how to believe in myself and that the only thing standing between me and my future was myself.”
