Our Honorees:

Barbara Butterworth: Barbara is an educator whose long career began in 1966, as a Peace Corps Volunteer science teacher in a Nepali village high school. She went on to serve as principal of three schools – a private and a public school in California and the American international School in Kathmandu, Nepal. Along the way, she has also taught at the college level, with a focus on science education, and has worked extensively in teacher education in Nepal. She holds an undergraduate degree in Astronomy from Wellesley College, an MAT from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in educational administration from Stanford University. A life long summer resident of Cutchogue, she and her husband have chosen Barbara’s family abode as their home base in retirement.

Phyllis Constan: Phyllis is a retired educator who has been a teacher and administrator at various levels. She began her career as a science teacher at Scarsdale High School.  A family move took her to Winnetka, Illinois where she was a middle school science teacher, curriculum coordinator, and assistant principal. Phyllis then became a principal, first at Miami Valley School, a small independent school in Dayton, Ohio, and then at Central School in Wilmette, Illinois. During her career, she focused on math and science education, gifted education, moral development and character education, peer counseling, and staff development. When she retired, Phyllis and her husband moved to Peconic, where the family had spent summers since the 1970s.
