Congratulations to Miss Emily Boncordo, English Teacher at the Ballston Spa Middle School
Miss Boncordo is a compassionate, outstanding teacher who helps her students that are struggling with their work and assists them to get their grades up. While that is common in most teachers, she even helps students with work from their other classes! Miss Boncordo has been known to constantly buy supplies for students in need, and they truly connect with her on a humanistic level that some may not have otherwise. And in addition to always supporting her students, members of the Ballston Spa Middle School have also informed us of her caring nature toward her fellow staff. Thanks to Miss Emily Boncordo for all that she does!
