Debra Manyin, Beaufort Elementary School

Spanish teacher Debra Manyin is one of the 20 national semi-finalists for the Class of 2013 National Teachers Hall of Fame.   Manyin, who was nominated by Principal Jennifer Morillo and Master Teacher Liz Rivera, completed an extensive application package that included numerous letters of support and essays regarding her teaching philosophy and experience.  The national selection committee will meet later this month to narrow the list down to five finalists.  Manyin has created a video to showcase her teaching and student learning for the final portion of the application process.  For more information, go to
