MPS Staff Honored at BOE Meeting

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Montclair Public Schools’ staff members were honored at the May 3 Board of Education meeting, receiving certificates of recognition from the Governor’s Educator of the Year Program. These outstanding individuals were selected by their schools for their educational innovation, student achievement and important services outside the classroom environment that lead to student success.

Each of these teachers and professionals are engaging and articulate, inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn, play an active role in the school as well as the community, and has the respect and admiration of students, parents and colleagues.
