CSDNB names Paraeducator and Teacher of the Year

CSDNB has named Mr. David Hemme, science teacher at DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School, its 2022 Teacher of the Year. Hemme graduated from the University of Missouri with a BS in Biology and a BA in Child Psychology in 2011. He began teaching in Connecticut through Teach For America in 2011 before kicking off his New Britain career in 2018 at DiLoreto.

“Mr. Hemme encompasses all of the attributes we want in our teachers. His innovative lessons allow students to think critically, make connections and confront challenges head on,” said Superintendent Nancy Sarra. “He is truly a gifted educator who goes above and beyond to ensure not only his classroom, but Diloreto, is a beacon for learning.”

CSDNB named Ms. Victoria Muscara, paraeducator at Smith Elementary School, its 2022 Paraeducator of the Year. Muscara began her CSDNB career at Smith in 2019 in a new Key room. Since then, she has assisted in opening a second Key room and made a lasting impact on the school community in many ways.

“Ms. Muscara exemplifies excellence and is dedicated to the students in her care. Her dependability and work ethic stand out as she strives to always provide the best support to our children, ensuring they not only learn and achieve, but are also developing their self-esteem,” said Sarra. “We are so thankful Ms. Muscara chose to return to her hometown to give back, setting an example for so many.”
