Teacher of the Year


Ritchey Ricci and Don Lockard combined to present the Ritchey J. Ricci Teacher of the Year Award to Tara Barone from Easton High. Growing up, Tara absolutely loved her teachers and wanted to be just like them. Her love for sports led her to a career as a Physical Education teacher. She strives to help students understand the need to be healthy and active. She wants them to know that physical activity is only part of a healthy life. People also need to be mentally secure and socially active. She plans to customize a magazine to help educate her students at all levels. She knows that teens are more likely to listen to their peers and she plans to start a podcast featuring students.
