Please join all of us at NJCTE in congratulating Samantha Shane, one of the 2018 M. Jerry Weiss Early-Career Teacher Award Winners.
Samantha Shane graduated from Montclair State University. During her time at MSU, she was Vice President of Kappa Delta Pi and the Teacher’s Club scholarship, which recognizes preservice teachers for their work at the undergraduate level. She also worked as a tutor off campus. At this tutoring center, she developed their English program. After graduation, she worked at Dwight Morrow High School in Englewood, NJ, and Sparta Middle School in Sparta, NJ. She is currently teaching at Morris County School of Technology. She is also pursuing her master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and hopes to continue to grow and learn as an educator. She is especially focused on infusing technology in the English classroom.
We look forward to Samantha’s contributions to NJCTE and to her continued success in infusing English education with technology.
