For the last several years, we've offered an annual New Haven Teacher's Appreciation award as a way of thanking our teachers for their invaluable work with our children. Because we received so many heartfelt nominations, my mother, Judy Chong, decided to match our award in my dad's memory. We were honored to present Mrs. Sarita Chawla from Delaine Eastin Elementary with the Leonard S. Chong Memorial Teacher Appreciation award. Besides the plaque presented by the nominating parent, Mrs. Chan, Mrs. Chawla received a check for $1000. Congratulations!
