Oradell, NJ March 11, 2015 —Huntington Learning Center, one of the leading tutoring centers in America, awarded Lita Gottesman the 2014 Educator of the Year award last month. Huntington Learning Center announced the prestigious award at its annual Company Center Convention held at the Teaneck Marriott at Glen Pointe. The convention was a time to honor staff members and their dedicated work.
Lita is one of the most requested teachers at Huntington’s Eastchester, NY center. She believes it is important to follow the curriculum and help every student reach his or her fullest potential. For example, Lita has converted students from the special education classrooms into regular education classrooms. Her willingness to work and assist in any situation is what makes Lita such an inspiration to students.
Huntington has been fortunate enough to have Lita as a teacher for 12 years. One Huntington parent explained: “My son would not even pick up a book. He could barely read in the fourth grade! After working with Lita these past two months, he cannot put the books down!” With a Bachelors of Arts in education, along with a double major in political science and history, teaching has always been a huge part of her life. Lita has been in the education profession since 1958.
