Burlington High is proud to announce that Jill McInerney, a member of our Science Department, has been recognized by Massachusetts Maritime Academy as an outstanding science educator who has had a great impact on her students.
The Massachusetts Maritime Academy presents its prestigious book award annually to high school teachers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). In addition to their chosen field of pedagogical expertise, award recipients must be nominated by a cadet at the Academy. That nomination includes a narrative on the profound influence that the teacher has had on the student's decision to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree at Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
Ms. McInerney was nominated by Cadet Marcus Peterson, a student at Mass Maritime who is a BHS graduate.
