Adler, a sixth grade science teacher, received $25,000 in addition to the award.

He is the only teacher in Massachusetts to receive the honor.

“I wouldn’t be a good teacher if it weren’t for the things my friends do for me every day, so thank you to all of our teachers. And thank you to everyone else who supports the school everyday,” he said.

A total of 45 educators in the country will receive the award this year.
