We are pleased to announce the 2021-2022 Teachers and Educational Services Professionals of the year for Pascack Valley High School!  This year, we recognize Dorely Leal- Drago (World Language (Spanish) Teacher) as our Teacher of the Year.  Our Educational Services Professional of the Year is Diane Fallon (Nurse).

When recognizing each teacher and professional in their respective classrooms and offices, Superintendent Fishbein shared quotes from students and colleagues who nominated the recipients. Below are a few of these quotes, which best describe the character of the recipients, and their impact on our school community.

We congratulate this year's recipients for all of their continued efforts to make our school a special place.

Ms. Dorely Leal-Drago

World Language (Spanish) Teacher

"Dorely has a heart of gold. She goes out of her way to help our students and parents; she is understanding, flexible, and extremely supportive of their needs. She also provides translation services for our IEP meetings and anytime we need to contact parents who speak Spanish; she will take diligent notes to ensure she is relaying accurate details, and she offers her assistance to parents then after to ensure that students are meeting with success. She is a kind soul who beams with enthusiasm and compassion! She is a pleasure to work with!"


Ms. Diane Fallon
School Nurse

"Diane has been an outstanding person to lead us through this pandemic. Her patience and understanding in handling everything that has been thrown at her has been nothing short of amazing.”

"[She] has so much on her plate with Covid and keeping the students safe and handles [it] with grace. She has a lot to do everyday and it is overlooked. I feel she should get recognized."
