Victoria Sasso, teacher at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School, was recently honored at the Clark Board of Education Meeting for being named the Union County Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Sasso is among twenty-one educators in New Jersey to receive this recognition by the New Jersey Department of Education.
“Mrs. Sasso is an exemplary educator who is most deserving of this recognition. We are honored to have her as a part of the Clark Schools family,” said Superintendent Edward Grande.
Mrs. Sasso began her teaching career in 2002 joining the Clark Public School District in 2006. She was initially hired as a Gifted and Talented Instructor at the elementary school. Four years ago, she began teaching sixth grade language arts at the middle school.
Teachers are nominated for Educator of the Year at the school level through the Governor’s Educator of the Year Program. They then go on to compete for the county and state recognition. As Union County Teacher of the year, Sasso will collaborate with other educators and bring valuable information back to the district.
