BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. -- Principal Debora French did not mince words in describing a pair of English teachers, calling Thomas Durkin and Michelle McNeight a "dynamic duo" at Briarcliff High School.

Durkin and McNeight were named "Collaborators of Excellence" by the New York State English Council.

"This dynamic duo has, for the past nine years, worked their magic with students for whom comprehensive English skills have been challenging," she said.  “Like a well-oiled machine, Mr. Durkin and Ms. McNeight create strategic lesson designs to address the specific needs of every child in their classroom. Their student-centered classroom sparks a high interest level and productive atmosphere which builds upon students’ strengths, confidence and intellectual curiosity."
