After being nominated by District parents, Reinhard first-grade teacher David Reilly was named Teacher of the Month for July 2015 by radio station KJOY FM. As a result of this honor, Mr. Reilly was invited to throw the first pitch at the Long Island Ducks baseball game on Aug. 23.

Mr. Reilly has been a teacher at Reinhard for 14 years and is president of the Bellmore Faculty Organization. He describes Bellmore as a special place where he has always felt great support from his colleagues and the administration. The nomination was made even more special by the amount of parent support and votes he received in winning the award.

“The best part of being named Teacher of the Month was hearing what parents said about me as a teacher and an individual,” Mr. Reilly said. “I am really touched by all of this.”
