Congratulations to Learning Specialist Eileen Bosco, the 2021 Distinguished Teaching Award Winner!
Learning Specialist Eileen Bosco is the 2021 Distinguished Teaching Award Winner. The award was presented by President of the Trinity School Alumni and Alumnae Association Janna Levine Raskopf '03.
The Distinguished Teaching Endowment was created in 1983 as a tribute to Clarence Bruner-Smith, Dudley M. Maxim ’32, and Frank G. Smith. In 1988, the Alumni Association decided to establish an annual award to a teacher who has taught at Trinity for ten years or more, exemplifies the history and traditions of the School, and who has demonstrated excellence in teaching. The prize, now known as the Greenberg Family-Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Prize, was increased to $10,000 in 2004.
Since its inception, thirty-four teachers have received this honor, their names displayed prominently on the Greenberg Family-Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Prize Plaque in the Great Hall. The 2021 award was given to Eileen Bosco.
Ms. Bosco started at Trinity as a learning specialist in the Middle School in 1995. She served as a Middle School class dean from 2008-2017. A past recipient of both the Lower School and Middle School Faculty Enrichment Award, Ms. Bosco's colleagues describe her as "THE mainstay of the Middle School’s Learning Service Program. She is a terrific model for greener members of the program. Her presence is a tremendous benefit for students with whom she works, but bears fruit in terms of the example she sets for her colleagues.” "She inspires a great deal of confidence because of her depth of knowledge and her ability to anticipate her students’ needs." "Her positive approach to her students and her quiet and unassuming manner helps students and parents remain confident and optimize their efforts by allowing them to focus on their studies.”
