Bishop Stang High School, a diocesan, co-educational, college preparatory school located on the Southcoast, announced two of its teachers have been selected by Barnes & Noble for the “My Favorite Teacher Contest” based on nominations from students. Jessica Seseske, a seven-year English teacher, Fall River resident and Westport native, took 2nd place, and Fall River resident Kathy Crosson, a 37-year veteran and science department chair, received Honorable Mention.
“An excellent education for students results from dedicated, knowledgeable teachers who truly love what they do,” said Peter Shaughnessy, President and Principal of Bishop Stang High School. “We are proud that Jessica Seseske and Kathy Crosson have been recognized for all their hard work and dedication to excellence.”
Teachers were nominated by essays that were submitted by their students. Junior Theresa Gallagher wrote the winning essay for Jessica Seseske and Junior Anthony Mahoney-Pacheco penned the essay for Kathy Crosson.
The teachers were honored at a ceremony at the Dartmouth-based Barnes & Noble store at 392 State Road on Saturday, April 12 at 4:00pm. Theresa Gallagher was asked to read her essay on Jessica Seseske at the ceremony.
