Congratulations to Finley Middle School English teacher Rebecca Carfora for earning her National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification in English language arts/early adolescence. Mrs. Carfora was recognized by Principal Nelson Iocolano, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna and the Board of Education at the March 13 BOE meeting. 

“For those of you who are not familiar with the process, it’s a very rigorous one,” Mr. Iocolano said. “Teachers have to complete four components; there’s an exam and a portfolio requirement, where you submit facts over a period of time. It’s really the gold standard of certification, so we are very, very proud that Rebecca has achieved such an honor.”
