A Filipino educator and Cavite State University (CvSU) PhD in Educational Management alumnus based in New York City received recognition for his dedication to help students shine in science and mathematics. 

Dr. Eleuterio F. Timbol, Jr. is among the seven recipients of the 2024 SLOAN Award for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics by the Fund for the City of New York (FCNY).

The award is being given to exceptional New York City public high school educators “who inspire and guide their students toward futures in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).”

“These teachers have demonstrated remarkable innovation in teaching, offering personalized support and designing curricula that open new pathways for students in fields such as biology, physics, robotics, and computer science. Their dedication has not only transformed their classrooms but also significantly contributed to the broader educational community,” the FCNY said in its website

With 25 years as a high school teacher, Dr. Timbol currently teaches Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry at the High School for Law Enforcement and Public Safety. He is also a member of the Association of Filipino-American Teachers of America and the Association of Filipino Teachers in Eastern America.

In 2022, Timbol was also among the 54 public school educators in the State of New York who received the Governor’s Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award in recognition of their exemplary teaching and dedication to students’ success.
