Greg Dieterich’s career is still in its early stages, but the Huntington UFSD teacher is already winning awards. The faculty member captured the Business Teachers Association of New York State’s Marsha W. Iverson Award for Outstanding New Business Educator.
A graduate of Babylon High School where he played on the football team, Mr. Dieterich has been teaching at Huntington High School and J. Taylor Finley Middle School since July 2019.
Mr. Dieterich earned a BS degree in accounting at SUNY Geneseo in 2016. He obtained a Master of Science degree in business education and marketing at Hofstra University in 2019.
Prior to coming to Huntington UFSD, Mr. Dieterich worked as a client service analyst at JP Morgan Chase in New York City and at Teacher, Money & Me. He completed his student teacher requirements at East Meadow High School.
Mr. Dieterich has served as an advisor to Huntington High School’s vaunted mock trial team. He will be coaching the Finley football team in the fall.
“I am sure Greg brings enthusiasm to the workplace and is a strong, contributing staff member,” said Tracy Farrell, president of the Business Teachers Association of New York State. “We are excited to see his enthusiasm and hard work as a new business educator.”
Huntington UFSD officials reviewed 57 applications and interviewed 27 candidates before recommending Mr. Dieterich for appointment to the district’s faculty.
“The honor is genuinely well deserved,” Huntington Superintendent James W. Polansky said. “Greg’s efforts beyond the classroom have had a tremendously positive impact on the school environment and the opportunities available to our students.”
