Meet the Recipients

Congratulations to our 2014-15 Big Apple Fellows!

The 2014 Big Apple Award recipients were chosen from a pool of more than 3,000 nominations, representing a diversity of grade levels, subject areas, and each of the five New York City boroughs. In addition to continuing their outstanding work in the classroom, these model educators are also spending the 2014-15 school year serving as Big Apple Fellows--representing teachers citywide by serving as advisers to the Chancellor.
