New London — New London Public Schools this week announced its teacher and paraprofessional of the year.

“Her forthright commitment and approach to our school and district goals around equity and social-emotional growth of all members of our Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School family is second to none,” Texidor said.

Paraprofessional of the Year is Eric Messick, who works with students at New London High School and has been in the district for 15 years.
