Meet the Recipients

Congratulations to our 2015-16 Big Apple Fellows!

The 2015 Big Apple Award recipients were chosen from a pool of more than 4,500 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 will also spend the 2015-16 school year serving as Big Apple Fellows--representing teachers citywide by serving as advisers to the Chancellor.
