SOMERS POINT — Jordan Road School teacher Erin Albrecht was honored Dec. 10 during a recent Somers Point Board of Education meeting for winning the New Jersey Department of Education Exemplary Educator award. 

Jordan Road School Principal Carleena Supp described Albrecht as collaborative, innovative and a leader. 

“She always takes the initiative to make positive changes for her team, for the school, make suggestions for improvement, and her peers, her colleagues, really follow behind her,” Supp said. 

Albrecht is also “a great team member” who “collaborates with everyone within the school, administrators, her colleagues and peers, and also students, parents and community members as well,” Supp said. 

Albrecht is the adviser to the school’s communications club and uses her skills with technology to help the students create videos, according to Supp. 

“Now we can add to that list ‘exemplary,’ but ‘exemplary’ is for her serving as a desired model of what a true teacher and a true educator is,” Supp said.  

In the same meeting, school board Vice President Rich Gray was recognized for his years of service to the board. Gray’s last meeting was Dec. 10. 

Gray was appointed to the Somers Point school board in 2012, according to Sentinel archives, and was elected to the board the following year. He resigned at the end of 2016 but was appointed to serve again last January. 

Four new members joined the school board in January following the November 2018 election, which had five open seats for the school board. Two members resigned before the election after leaving the school district. 

Board President Staci DiMattia Endicott thanked him for “coming out of retirement” to serve. 

“We’re glad that you could be here and thank you,” she said.
