Also recently at the Forest Board room, Mr. Abraham Lee (who teaches at Cumberland and at North School) and I were honored by Dr. Westerhold and Mrs. Murphy the D62 School Board President for earning our National Board Certification in Art Education! Mr. Lee, and I wrote each wrote a four part paper explaining how our art instruction is aligned with National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. We also took an exam as part of this process. Fortunately Mr. Lee, Mrs. Curtis (a Literacy teacher at North School) and I can proudly call ourselves National Board Certified Teachers!
