Fairport teacher selected for Teachers Hall of Fame

Richard T. Ognibene, a chemistry and physics teacher at Fairport High School, received the news at a student award ceremony Friday.
Ognibene has received a number of honors during his 28 years at Fairport. He received the 2002 American Chemical Society Teacher of the Year Award and the 2006 Fairport High School Crystal Apple Award for excellence in teaching.
He was also named New York State Teacher of the Year in 2008.

Ognibene has been an outspoken advocate for public school teachers. Earlier this year, he co-authored along with six other former state Teachers of the Year,an open letter to Gov. Cuomo, saying that they take personal offense at his education reform measures.
He has also served as an adviser to his district's Gay Straight Alliance and is an active member of the Fairport Educators Association.
The National Teachers Hall of Fame was founded in 1989 in Emporia, Kansas, to recognize outstanding career teachers and to inspire others to enter the teaching profession. To date, 115 teachers have been inducted from 37 states.

Joining Ognibene in the Hall's class of 2015 are Patricia Jordan (Roslyn, New York), Susan Rippe (Olathe, Kansas), Ben Talley (Bristol, Virginia) and Brigitte Tennis (Redmond, Washington).
Induction ceremonies will be held in Washington, D.C., in May with formal ceremonies in Emporia, Kansas, in June.
