A Hopatcong Middle School teacher, Eric Strand, 57, from the Flanders has been charged with criminal sexual contact on a female student at the school. The female is between 13 and 16, and Strand is accused of developing an "inappropriate relationship" during the last school year.

Scott Malagold thought he wanted to teach college. Then, he thought he might want to be a lawyer. But, he enjoyed a temporary job teaching at a public high school in The Bronx and by his second year of law school knew the law wasn’t for him.

So, by a somewhat circuitous route, Malagold is this year’s Morris County Teacher of the Year.
