A teacher from Boston who graduated from a Hudson Valley High School has been named National Teacher of the Year. Hudson Valley One reports Sydney Chaffee was selected by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) as the 2017 recipient.

Chaffee attended and graduated from Saugerties High School in 2001 before moving on to Sarah Lawrence College for her bachelors degree. Cambridge, Massachusetts is home to Lesley University, where she obtained her Masters.

According to the press release, Chaffee is eager to have an impact on education in America stating she, ‘hopes to participate in a national conversation how education can be a tool for social justice and empower students to stand up for themselves’.

Traditionally, Teacher of the Year award winners have a chance to meet the president. Although no meeting with President Trump is scheduled at this time. Chaffee is the first teacher from a charter school to win the award.
