Little Silver Mayor Robert C. Neff, Jr. observed at last week's council meeting that having teacher Mandy Galante over at Red Bank Regional is "neat for us."
"She's someone from the community who's made us proud," he added, before reading a proclamation recognizing Galante's designation as Teacher of the Year at the High School.
"Everybody knows your accomplishments," said Neff of Galante's accomplishments creating the curriculum that offers students a study concentration and career path in cyber security. "It's so well deserved."
We expect to see Galante, who's married to Councilman Don Galante, back at a future meeting to be recognized by council for also nabbing the county's Teacher of the Year bragging rights.
