Congratulation to Our Lady of Trust’s Ms. Re

Nancy Re Cregan, second grade teacher from Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy, Canarsie, was chosen as a 2018 recipient of the 9/11 Tribute Museum Teacher Awards. On the 25th anniver- sary of the first attack on the World Trade Center, the 9/11 Tribute Museum honored seven teachers from across the U.S. who have created exemplary projects that guided their students to under- stand the historical and humanitarian impact of the attacks and their aftermath. Ms. Re was the only recipient from a Catholic school and she shared how wonderful it was to speak about her faith. The academy received a monetary gift, and the art work, from the second grade students, is on display in the museum.
