A news item about my son

from the Norwich Bulletin, August 22, 2007

PLAINFIELD --James Salsich, a teacher at Plainfield Central School, recently was recognized as one of the nation's most innovative educators in the 2007 ING Unsung Heroes awards program.

Salsich was one of 100 winners who received a $2,000 award to help fund his innovative idea and bring it to life in the classroom.

He now will compete with other winners for one of the top three prizes -- an additional $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000.

The ING Unsung Heroes awards program recognizes kindergarten through grade 12 educators nationwide for their innovative teaching methods, creative educational projects and ability to positively influence the children they teach.

Since honoring its first unsung hero in 1996, ING has awarded $2.8 million to nearly 1,200 educators across the United States. The 2007 ING Unsung Heroes winners were selected from a group of more than 1,400 applications.
