Presented by Neil Murray

Neil Murray teaches 11th Grade American and Military history at Pine Plains Central School District. Neil is a leader in the field of living history as a powerful educational tool. His own respect of, and love for, local history comes through in his teaching and in his broader community engagement. Students are left with a lifelong curiosity and respect for the events, and the people, of the past.

Neil will talk us through his embrace of this quickly evolving teaching tool, and uses local history to spark interest and imagination in students.

Neil won the 2020/2021 Eileen Mylod Hayden Excellence in History Education Award which is awarded to teachers at middle or high school levels who effectively impart a love of history on their students, at a recognized public, private, or parochial institution located within Dutchess County.
