Two professors recognized by CNY Education Consortium

A pair of SUNY Oswego professors were recently honored for outstanding teaching and overall accomplishments by the Central New York Education Consortium.

Faculty members Florence Kirk, associate professor of accounting, and Julie Pretzat, professor and chair of music, received Philip Martin Educator of Excellence Awards at the consortium’s 14th annual Professional Partnerships Conference in Syracuse last month.

Kirk and Pretzat were two of four educators receiving the Martin award, which honors longtime commitment to quality teaching and leadership and presents honorees as role models for a large group of peers, especially those new to the profession.

“The Professional Partnerships Conference is a welcoming event for Central New York’s new faculty, kindergarten through post-secondary teachers,” Pretzat explained. “There were approximately 300 teachers and administrators in attendance.”

Kirk and Pretzat also received SUNY Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence in Teaching last spring.
