A Brockport elementary school teacher has been named the 2018 Teacher of the Year.
The Board of Regents named Christopher Albrecht the 2018 New York State Teacher of the Year. Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa and State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia presented Albrecht, a fourth-grade teacher at the Fred W. Hill School in Brockport, with a certificate of recognition as well as the Thomas Sobol Award and the David Johnson Award.
“Christopher Albrecht not only teaches academics, but helps build character, humor and a positive attitude in every student,” Commissioner Elia said. “He has a long history of service to his district, students and his community.”
Albrecht has taught at the Fred W. Hill School for 20 years, the last 14 spent teaching fourth grade. He is a native of upstate New York and is a graduate of St. Bonaventure University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. He earned his master’s degree in elementary education from Clarion University.
In the community, Albrecht sits on the Board of Trustees for the Western Monroe Historical Society and is a trustee on the Board of the Clarkson Historical Society.
Albrecht will serve as an ambassador for teachers throughout the state over the next year. He will also have the opportunity to travel to the White House to meet the president.
