Honoring a Comsewogue Warrior

Legislator Hahn Recognizes Comsewogue Teacher Dawn Esser as an Educator of Excellence - PHOTO IMAGE

On the agenda during this week’s Comsewogue School District Board of Education meeting was a special presentation by Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn to John F. Kennedy Middle School teacher Dawn Esser for being an “Educator of Excellence” within the Fifth Legislative District.  


Serving for sixteen years of her two decade career within the Comsewogue School District, Dawn has taught Sixth Grade Inclusion, Fifth and Sixth Grade Special Classes and Life Skills during her tenure.  Throughout her career, Ms. Esser has inspired her students to work towards their goals through creative and reflective lesson plans including activities associated with the Life Cycle of a Butterfly.  During this topic, Esser engages children on the concept of change, which is brought to life through the release of butterflies into a school garden.


Inside the classroom and out, Ms. Esser has understood the important role she holds in that student’s life and has worked to maintain those bonds with class alums trough letters, FaceTime video chats and visits during lunch breaks.


It is through her position, passions and promises that Dawn Esser has proven to be a Comsewogue Warrior, committed to the empowerment of her students and earning her the distinction of being an “Educator of Excellence” within the Fifth Legislative District of Suffolk County.
