HARRISBURG (Dec. 10, 2018) – PSEA congratulates Marilyn Pryle, an English teacher in the Abington Heights School District in Lackawanna County, who was named the 2019 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year today.

“PSEA congratulates Marilyn Pryle, along with the 11 other exceptional educators named Teacher of the Year finalists,” said PSEA President Rich Askey. “Marilyn and her colleagues work hard every day to help students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Their tireless dedication to their students is helping prepare the next generation of leaders and innovators. And that benefits all of us because strong public schools make strong communities.”
As Pennsylvania's Teacher of the Year, Pryle will meet and collaborate with other educators, and represent the commonwealth in next year's National Teacher of the Year competition.
