The Ewing Public Schools Announce 2019 Educators of the Year


The Ewing Public Schools is proud to announce the district recipients of the 2019 Governor’s Teacher and Educational Professionals Recognition Program awards.


The Governor’s Teacher and Educational Professionals Recognition Program was developed in 1985 for the purpose of recognizing and honoring teachers and educational professionals who exhibit outstanding performance. The motivation for this program is based on the premise that teaching excellence is one of the most significant factors impacting student achievement and the quality of public schools.


Lore Elementary School's Governor's Educator of the Year is Ms. Tracy Radler.

Ms. Radler was described by parents, staff and students as inspiring, gracious, dedicated beyond words.


Ms. Radler was hired by the district in 1993 and is going on her 26th year at Lore Elementary School as a Physical Education teacher.  Ms. Radler started her educational career at Lore Elementary School and then went to Parkway, only to return to Lore.  Ms. Radler graduated from The College of New Jersey with her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and holds her certificate in Health and Physical Education.  Ms. Radler continued her education journey at Thomas Edison State University and received her Masters Degree in Educational Leadership graduated Summa Cum Laude and holds her principal’s certification.

“Ms. Radler goes above and beyond her job description. She engages students and makes them want to come to school,” Lore Principal Kelly Kawalek remarked.  “She gets to know her students and talks to them about how the lessons they learn in school can help them to become better individuals and citizens outside of school. She is an excellent representative of Lore School as our Teacher of the Year.”


The Board and school district will honor the Educators of the Year at a ceremony in May.  Afterwards, the educators will travel to ETS in Princeton for a recognition reception with their fellow county Educator of the Year honorees.
