 Frank Noschese, a physics teacher at John Jay High School, has been selected as a New York State Master Teacher and is a recipient of a 2017 Fellows Award from the American Association of Physics Teachers.

 “As a new member of the Master Teacher program, I am looking forward to learning and sharing with accomplished teachers throughout the state and to bring new ideas back into my classroom,” said Mr. Noschese. 

 “I speak for all of our colleagues when I express our pride in Frank’s accomplishment and the excellent work he regularly does with our students,” said Steven T. Siciliano, Ed.D., the Principal of John Jay High School.

Mr. Noschese advocates for hands-on, minds-on science instruction in which students construct their own meaning about science concepts. His classroom has been featured on MSNBC.com and CUNY-TV. In 2012, he was an invited speaker for TEDxNYED and, in 2011 he was a winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.

Mr. Noschese earned a BA in Physics and an MA in Teaching, both from Cornell University. He is a National Board Certified Teacher who has spent his entire eighteen-year teaching career at John Jay High School. He is currently teaching College-Prepatory Physics, Advanced Placement Physics C, and Probability and Statistics. Noschese is a member of his district’s Technology Committee and Professional Development Committee. In addition, he belongs to several professional associations: the American Association of Physics Teachers, the American Modeling Teachers Association, and STEM Teachers NYC.


The  New York State Master Teacher Program was launched in 2013 by Governor Cuomo to recognize the state's highest performing teachers—ensuring the best and brightest stay in the classroom and share their expertise with peers and pre-service teachers. To date, more than 800 Master Teachers across all ten regions of the state have been selected.
