The Hamptons Film Festival Hits A Home Run:

Townsend Harris HS teacher and Queens College Honors in the Humanities Alumnus Rafal Olechowski was presented with the 2011 Milken Educator Award by the Milken Family Foundation.


While an undergraduate student at Queens College, Mr. Olechowski was a Student Teacher in the THHS Bridge Year Humanities Seminar.  Continuing his tradition of excellence, Mr. “O” joined the staff of Townsend Harris High School and we are proud of this deserved recognition of his ability to teach, connect to, and learn from his students and colleagues.

Humanities Instructor Rafal Olechowski receives what Teacher Magazine hails as the "Oscars of Teaching."
