Marblehead —For making a difference in her students’ lives every day and for having a positive impact on the school in which she teaches, a Bell School third-grade teacher was awarded the 2013 Margaret Voss Howard Teacher Recognition Award recently.

Lindsay Turcotte, a Swampscott native who has taught at Bell for the past nine years, was presented the annual award during a meeting with the entire faculty inside the school’s library just after the school day ended on Wednesday, June 19.

“This year’s honoree is a wonderful representative of teachers who care,”  said Peg Voss Howard, in whose honor the award was established after she retired as a Marblehead school administrator. “She is a classroom teacher who has been warmly and enthusiastically nominated by a team of her fellow educators – a huge honor, in itself.”

This year marked the  first time that the award was given after a teacher's colleagues - in this case third-grade teachers Adam Bowen, Melissa Erickson, Maura McMahon and Karen Pierce - jointly submitted nomination papers into the Essex County Community Foundation, the organization that oversees the award and selects recipients, one from Salem and another from Marblehead, each year.
