Marsha Dionisio was honored recently as one of People Magazine’s Teachers of the Year! She teaches fourth grade at Hugh J. Boyd Jr. Elementary School in Seaside Heights.

She’s taught for 29 years and used all that experience with help kids in her school who lost almost everything in Hurricane Sandy. The school was destroyed as well as many of the students’ homes. Marsha herself was without a home for eight months when she started teaching in a borrowed high school gym with donated supplies. The only book that she had multiple copies of was The Invention of Hugo Cabret to teach reading, spelling, math, probability, social studies and geography.

Congratulations, Mrs. Dionisio!
