David Sarno, veteran automotive technology teacher at Ralph McKee High School in Staten Island, and Jacqueline Rodriguez-Smith, science department coordinator at Transit Tech High School in Brooklyn, each received the 2013 Stanley Schair CTE Teacher Award for Excellence and Innovation presented during the United Federation of Teachers CTE Awards Ceremony on February 7.  Both honorees received an Apple iPad from Corey Fernandes of the Municipal Credit Union plus a year’s classroom subscription to the New York Times from Stephanie Doba, the newspaper’s education manager.

Stanley Schair was the long-time chair of the CTE Council during some tough times for career and technical education. His tenure culminated in the landmark Mayoral Task Force on CTE that energized the current generation of technical education and saw the inauguration of many new CTE high schools in New York City. Mr. Schair passed away suddenly in 2009, but his widow Sandra was on hand for the awards ceremony
