RFH Announces the Educator of the Year
Mr. Leddin’s contributions to the school community extend beyond his classroom, beyond any academic year, and reach deeply into the lives and memories of his students and the RFH community. He is an indispensable member of our extra-curricular team as he is the Tech Crew advisor for the school plays. Without the countless hours that Mr. Leddin provides our school plays, the plays would not be as richly decorated nor visually appealing as they are currently. Mr. Leddin has done this so well that he was nominated by the Monmouth County Basie Award for Outstanding Set Design for the production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Amongst other activities, Mr. Leddin also provides technology support to many evening events for our students and parents in our building as well. Mr. Leddin is truly a team player who knows that the interests of the school and students come first.
Mr. Leddin creates strong connections with a variety of different students in our building. Every student needs a teacher, whom they can rely on as a supportive adult, and Mr. Leddin is that for many students. Mr. Leddin is always supportive of our students’ social and emotional health. Numerous students have stated that Mr. Leddin is their trusted adult in the building. Mr. Leddin truly approaches his relationships with students with equal care and compassion. These relationships were evident when Mr. Leddin was honored as Educator of the Year at a Board of Education meeting and current and former students and members of the community came out to support him. He makes a great, positive impact in the lives of so many students.
Mr. Leddin is an example for all teachers. He is enthusiastic and passionate about educating students. He is fully invested in the students not only in the classroom but in our extracurricular programs. He fosters a positive attitude to our students and staff, which fosters a positive environment and culture for the school in general. Mr. Leddin is a true asset to the Rumson Fair Haven Regional High School community in so many ways and we are extremely proud to honor his hard work, along with his contributions and accomplishments!
