Lincoln Center Education has teamed up with the Department of Education’s “Big Apple Awards” to honor an art teacher for making a difference in the lives of his/her students and for going above and beyond in their role as an arts educator. The Lincoln Center Arts Teacher Award is one of 11 honors given as part of these new DOE sponsored awards. Each Big Apple Teacher Award winner was granted $3,500 for use by the teacher in the classroom.
The first Lincoln Center Arts Teacher was presented last week by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, and the first recipient is Melissa Salguero of PS 48 in the Bronx. She teaches students in grades K-5, and is being recognized for bringing music back into the school which has not has a music program in 50 years. Salguero created a group called SongCorps, which is designed to reach out to at-risk 4th grade boys through music in partnership with the local Hunts Point Alliance for Children.
