Ridgewood NJ, Ms. Medha Kirtane, a teacher at Ridgewood High School, has been named the 2021 New Jersey History Teacher of the Year, an award presented annually by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the nation’s leading organization dedicated to K-12 American history education.
“It is an honor to be part of the Gilder Lehrman family of educators seeking to better ourselves and our craft in order to provide students with the opportunity to grow as historians and citizens of this world,” said Ms. Kirtane. “The organization provides so many resources for practical and scholarly growth, and I have been humbled to even be considered for such an award. I love learning alongside my students and from both them and my colleagues, so this award is a testament to the Social Studies department and my students as well. Ridgewood has always allowed me to be a student of history and pedagogy, and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
