NECSD Recognizes National Board Certified Teacher

     At a recent Board of Education meeting, the Newburgh Enlarged City School District Board of Education recognized Judith Cooper, a teacher in the Newburgh Free Academy Science Department.

     This year, Cooper successfully completed the requirements for the prestigious National Board Certification and became a National Board Certified Teacher. The process is a challenging journey a teacher undertakes to analyze his/her own teaching practices and to find ways to improve teaching techniques to achieve maximum understanding by the students.

     Through this year long certification process, the NECSD and the Newburgh Teachers’ Association provided the necessary support to Cooper to assist her in successfully completing the process. On behalf of the Board of Education, Cooper was recognized with a certificate of achievement.
