Board Honors Heroic Timber Point Teachers


Two heroic educators at Timber Point were honored for their recent first aid actions during a March 8 Board of Education meeting. Both successfully performing the Heimlich maneuver, kindergarten teacher Michele Brodtman saved a child who was choking on a Fruit Roll-Ups snack, while paraprofessional Deborah Keating saved a child who was choking on a chicken nugget during lunch.

“Both children were saved due to these amazing women jumping into action, responding to the situation without hesitation,” said Timber Point Principal Danielle Naccarato.

Also recognized during the board meeting were students who were selected for the Long Island String Festival Association and the three winners of the middle school's annual spelling bee.
