Shrewsbury – Caryn Keenan has much to smile about these days. Recently the Oak Middle School teacher was honored by the Massachusetts Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (MAHPERD) as the 2014 Middle School Teacher of the Year. Having taught for 21 years, Keenan is delighted with this recognition that she has received but was also quick to give credit to others.

“I love my job and all of the people that I work with. My boss, Patricia Degon, is awesome. She is the director of health, physical education and family consumer science [for the district]. The town of Shrewsbury is fantastic because they are such huge supporters of physical education as well,” said Keenan.
