WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Eastview Middle School teacher Raquel Reale will be recognized Friday as part of the “Barnes & Noble My Favorite Teacher Contest” thanks to two eighth-graders who nominated her.

Julia Chen and Julianne Tung wrote an essay explaining why Reale, an ELA teacher, is their favorite. Students were invited to nominate teachers by writing essays, poems or thank-you letters that tell how that teacher influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire him or her.

The students' essay earned Reale the Honorable Mention award, not to mention some “special awards,” according to a statement.

The students will also receive certificates of recognition and will be honored at the award ceremony at 5:30 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble in the White Plains City Center.

H.C. Crittenden Middle School teacher Jeanine Cappello was named the local winner of the contest. Taylor Morgis, an eighth-grader at the Byram Hills school in Armonk, nominated her.

Cappello will now be entered into the regional competition, where six winners will be chosen, each receiving a NOOK HD and a $500 Barnes & Noble Gift Card. Then one teacher will be named the “Barnes & Noble National Teacher of the Year” and receive $5,000 for themselves and their school.

More details on the contest rules can be found on the Barnes & Noble website .
