AUBURN, Mass. – Auburn High School teacher Daniel Creamer was selected as an “Unsung Hero” in the Saint Michael's College teacher recognition program after a former student nominated him.
Creamer, a Spanish teacher and the foreign language department head at both the middle and high school, was nominated by Mary Gannon, a graduate of Auburn High School and a freshman at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vt.
Through this program, the college honors teachers who “provide their students with the academic skills and moral support necessary to be successful in post-secondary pursuits,” said Jerry Flanagan, Saint Michael’s vice president for admission and enrollment management.
In Gannon’s nomination letter, she said, “Daniel T. Creamer is genuinely devoted to his work as a teacher at Auburn High School. He is most well-known as a modest, yet talented teacher, but he is better-known as a wise, inspirational and spirited friend.”
At last week’s School Committee meeting, Superintendent Maryellen Brunelle “offered sincere congratulations to Mr. Creamer and to all of our teachers who truly are unsung heroes.
“And special thanks to Mary Gannon for taking the time to recognize a teacher,” Brunelle added. “I know how very much it means to Mr. Creamer to have that happen.”
The college is “very fortunate to have Mary Gannon as a member of our community," Flanagan said.
“I hope that the best and brightest from Auburn High School will continue to come to Saint Michael's College."
