Harriet Hubbard named NJAGC Teacher of the YearThe NJAGC Awards Dinner will be on Thursday March 16 at Salt Creek Inn located in Princeton, New Jersey. This event is in recognition of Harriet Hubbard and her superb work at Penns Grove-Carneys Point School District.

Harriet, a resident of Cinnaminson, NJ, teaches gifted and talented students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade in the Penns Grove Carney’s Point School District in Salem County.

“Her accomplishments are many and diverse. She opens doors for her students in a myriad of ways, from schoolyard gardening, to building solar cars and participating in a solar car competition, to learning Latin, to holding an annual Harry Potter Day. Her students thrive on the exposure to new ideas and new knowledge,” stated Elaine Mendelow, Past President of NJAGC.

Director of Curriculum and Instruction in Penns Grove commented that “Ms. Hubbard has the communication skills to provide support and provoke growth and enrichment in her students. She approaches her job with a high degree of patience, appreciation, and deep regard for the aims of education.”

In 2001, Harriet received the Parent of the Year Award for her involvement in NJAGC, the Cinnaminson School District, and her daughter, Lindsey’s participation in the Project Challenge gifted program. Harriet joined the state organization and quickly took on responsibilities as a Trustee, Secretary, and for the past several years as Treasurer.

She willingly gives of her time and has been a presenter at the annual state conference as well as the annual REACH Event in Pennsauken, NJ.

Nevertheless, as Harriet became more involved in her daughter’s education, she began to focus on gifted education. Hubbard volunteered for many more events. Regardless, the events ranged from covering school-board meetings to researching the importance of specific gifted programming & school-wide enrichment, plus much more. Furthermore, Hubbarb covered the NJAGC Conference as press. However, it was during this event when she realized a major career change was inevitable. She left her job as a reporter to pursue the alternate route and become a teacher of the gifted!

“I wouldn’t be a book editor in New York now without the love of words and the intense curiosity about the world, instilled in me by my mother,” remarked Lindsey.
