CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Fifth-grade teacher Kira Herbert, of the Croton-Harmon School District, has been recognized with an Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award -- which comes with $5,000 to be used for professional development.

Herbert teaches at the Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School, in Croton-on-Hudson.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo established the award program to honor outstanding teachers from the state's 10 regions.

"New York State has thousands of excellent teachers who prepare our students for the future and help them reach their full potential," Cuomo said. "This new program will recognize our most outstanding educators, while supporting their professional growth. I commend all teachers for their dedication to making a difference in the lives of students across the state."

Recipients of the awards were chosen by a panel of education experts.

In addition to the plaque and $5,000 to support her professional development, Herbert will be invited to meet with university, workforce and policy leaders across the state, to share her expertise and insights.
