“Corin consistently gives her heart and soul to Pascack Hills. She provides meaningful and enriching lessons in her classes, goes out of her way to help students struggling, helps out at as many sporting events as she can, and manages multiple leadership positions outside of the classroom such as organizing fundraisers, Advising DECA and multiple other clubs. She never hesitates to help or to make sure no one falls in between the cracks. Her warmth and dedication to this school needs to be acknowledged. ” - Colleague


“Ms. Gamgort is an amazing teacher that supports all of her students and is a great asset to the school community. Despite her extremely busy schedule having 6 classes and running 4 clubs she manages to come to school every day with passion for business and helping her students learn. During my time at Pascack Hills Ms. Gamgort has always made me feel supported in her classes. She makes each and everyone of her students feel like they matter and even when she is busy she still takes time to individualize her lessons to cater to her different students' needs.” - Student

“Jen Zimmermann has transformed our School Counseling Department.  Within the department, Jen has brought a sense of positivity, resilience, relatability, and above all else, a WEALTH of knowledge in the field of mental health. I nominate Jen not only because I believe she absolutely deserves it, but I also want her to know that I and all of her colleagues appreciate and see the hard work that she puts in day in and day out that rarely receives any admiration or recognition.  I am proud to call her a colleague, and more importantly, a friend.” - Colleague


“Mrs. Zimmermann is very caring and understanding. Her warm and welcoming personality helps make everyone she meets very comfortable.” - Student
