Educational Specialist of the Year - Jennifer Lubonski

Jennifer Lubonski has dedicated her professional life to the education of students and staff in Fair Lawn.  After graduating from Vassar College with a degree in mathematics and psychology, Jen began working as a math teacher at FLHS in the fall of 2005.  Though she taught a variety of courses during her 15 years in the department, she was known for being the lead teacher in Algebra 1.  Beyond the classroom, Jen was the assistant coordinator of student activities, the student government advisor, the assistant cross country coach and the distance coach for spring track and field.

Holding masters' degrees in both Education Leadership and Educational Technology, it was a natural transition to become the FLHS Instructional Tech Coach when the position opened in June 2020.  In this role, Jen works along-side a team of technicians, offering classroom perspective on tech procedures and concerns.  She also works closely with teachers finding technology solutions for the classrooms as well as leading group and individual trainings.  She continues to interact with students on a daily basis in a variety of ways, most notably through the Student Tech Squad, the Digital Portfolio Project and her tech info-graphic Two O’Clock Tech.  For almost 20 years, Jen has brought vision, passion, and a smile to our building.
