Islanders Teacher of the Month

Pulaski Elementary School fifth grader teacher Danna Carrillo has been selected as the Islanders Teacher of the Month for May 2022. The New York Islanders celebrates teachers and school staff members who work to inspire brighter futures.

Ms. Carrillo uses the Future Goals program in the classroom, which is a STEM-in-sports initiative that was launched by the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players’ Association to provide K-12 students with STEM education.

“The program reinforces math and science skills in an engaging matter,” Ms. Carrillo said. “Students have a better grasp on new educational material because they have that new schema that allows them to make their education meaningful.”

Congratulations to Ms. Carrillo for this recognition!
