East Meadow High School English teacher Evelyn Sideri recently visited Harvard University in honor of having been named the Distinguished Educator of 2018 last April, by the Harvard Club of Long Island.

In addition to the award, Ms. Sideri also received a grant to travel to Cambridge, Mass. for the “Harvard Experience.” She had the opportunity to support her research in the area of teachers as lifelong learners during her visit from March 4-7. She also met with East Meadow alumni in the area, viewed the Emily Dickinson Archive, attended a class in Classical Mythology, took a tour of the campus and interviewed professors from the Graduate School of Education.

Ms. Sideri was nominated for the award by class of 2017 graduate Mahalia Mathelier, who guided the campus tour during her visit.

“The experience provided personal growth and increased awareness for my growth as an educator,” said Ms. Sideri. The district congratulates Ms. Sideri for her continued commitment to her profession, her students, and to her own professional learning.
