Navindra Haripersaud was nominated by an anonymous student.
Mr. Haripersaud is one of the most skilled teachers! He's an alum of Thomas A. Edison CTE High School, and he has extreme knowledge when it comes to his job: teaching the Cyber Security shop class.
"During my sophomore year, I came into his class not wanting anything to do with it. As the years went by, I grew to love his class because of the way he relates the topic to real life situations and gets us involved," said his nominator. "Mr Haripersaud teaches in a way we wish most teachers taught us, and that’s because he makes sure we understand the topic and information he teaches before he tests us. He’ll take the time to sit with us if we need it so we don’t feel lost. As a senior, his patience, knowledge and personality will be something I remember for the rest of my life."
