NH Teachers Honored

The following teachers have been recognized by a sponsor in the Honoring New Hampshire Teachers Campaign presented by Service Credit Union.  Learn how you can honor a teacher who has made a difference in your life. 

David Fischer, Pinkerton Academy

Mr. Fischer is a tremendous guidance counselor. Without his support and belief in my son, especially throughout the Covid pandemic, my son would probably not have graduated on time. Mr. Fisher went above and beyond to make sure Andrew had everything he needed to succeed and he never gave up on him. I am truly thankful to have such a supportive, yet firm role model for my son. Mr. Fisher absolutely is one of the best!! Thank you!

Alissa Demian, Elm Street Middle School

Ms. Demian made a tremendous impact on our daughter’s
education. Ms. Demian’s patience, kindness, and encouragement allowed our
daughter to be happy at school, grow her confidence, learn to advocate for
herself, and make friends at school. Ms. Demian taught our daughter life long
lessons and made learning fun! We are truly grateful for all that Ms. Demian
has taught our daughter.

Becky Mayhew, Glenna Lydick, Tim Dukshire, SEE Science Center Educators

Last school year, The SEE Education Team delivered over 370 programs in-person, outreach, virtual and virtual kits formats to over 6,500 school children.  Through SEE's Inclusion Initiative over 90% of these programs were delivered for free to low income and underserved youth.  The SEE team did an amazing job reaching out to teachers, coaching them through the use of virtual platforms and inspiring children across the state.  They are on record this year to reach even more children and we want to thank them for their amazing efforts.

Jennifer Pingree, Bedford High School

I would like to sponsor Jennifer Pingree who is a biology teacher at Bedford High School. My son was in her biology class last year when he was a sophomore. It was always be a rare occasion for him to come home and talk about something at school that was interesting to him for the past 10 years. However throughout last year, and during a time that was mostly remote and difficult overall, he consistently talked about what he was learning about in Mrs Pingree's class. He would explain each lesson with such enthusiasm and detail that my Husband and I would listen in amazement! Not only was she so great teaching biology in a way that could keep teenagers engaged and interested during remote learning, she quickly was able to understand our son's struggles in the beginning of the year to help him have a successful year. She is fantastic in her job and I would love for this program to sponsor her to continue to do great things!

Mrs. Tourigny has been an incredible role model and teacher. I've had the pleasure of knowing her throughout my childhood and schooling. She always greets me with witty humor and genuine care.

She also introduced me to fat bear week, which is probably the most important thing I've ever learned about.
