JFK teacher Lauren Chipkin applied to be a passage reviewer for the upcoming state assessments and was selected to work with both the New York State Education Department and Questar, the creator of this year’s tests. She is also applying to be an item writer for the assessments.

Chipkin’s educational excellence was previously recognized by the state in 2012, when she was highlighted for her expertise in teaching literacy. The state sent a video crew to the school to work with several teachers to create videos that were used on the EngageNY website as exemplary models of teaching practices.

“Lauren is considered to be a leader among her peers in literacy and teaching methods, techniques and strategies,” said JFK Principal Susan Bonner of Chipkin, who has taught third grade and reading at JFK for 16 years.
