NewsChannel 13 traveled to more than a dozen schools to highlight some of the best educators in the Capital Region.

The teachers for the 2015-2016 Top Teacher series were all chosen in advance following a nomination period in the fall. We hope you’ll submit a nomination when we do the series again next year.

Top Teacher: Andrea Neiman, Columbia High School

Andrea Neiman teaches art at Columbia High School. She is happy to be teaching in a school she used to be a student at. “I find art is a vehicle for teaching about life and the world around us,” she explained. “[I am] very fortunate that I am able to share what I am passionate about with these young people.”
