2012 Connecticut Teacher of the Year, David Bosso, Joins Board of Visitors

I am proud to serve on the ENHP Board of Visitors, particularly since it aims to positively impact the community through active engagement and service.  It is clear that there is meaning behind "Excellence Through Relevance." Too often, it seems, there is a disconnect between research and practice, and institutions of higher education are removed from ground level activities - the goal of ENHP is quite the opposite.  With the initiatives taken by the College. the transformational relationship between the university and the community will continue to grow stronger, and I am glad to be a part of this process.

David Bosso, who earned a Master’s degree in Educational Computing and Technology from the University of Hartford in 2004, returns to his alma mater this fall as a member of his college's Board of Visitors. Bosso is the 2012 Connecticut Teacher of the Year.  As a Social Studies teacher at Berlin High School, he aims to increase his students’ global awareness, appreciation for the enduring influence of history and culture, and understanding of current issues.

Travel grants that have taken him to Egypt, Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia, China, and Ghana illustrate his work toward developing students’ global competency.  For his efforts in the classroom and beyond, he was recognized by the Connecticut Council of the Social Studies for its Excellence in Social Studies Education award in 2009.

Bosso has made numerous presentations on teaching practices, classroom management, and technology in his school, district, statewide, and regionally. In addition to active membership on the Board of Directors of the Connecticut Council for the Social Studies, he is currently the co-chair for the Northeast Regional Conference on the Social Studies to be held in April of 2012.

Bosso also holds a Master’s Degree in History from Central Connecticut State University, and he is currently enrolled in the Doctorate in Education program at American International College in Springfield, MA.
