Franklin Lakes Teachers Receive Awards

District awards four of its own for outstanding service in education

This week the Franklin Lakes Board of Education awarded four teachers for outstanding service in borough schools.

The following teachers were awarded the 2012 Bergen County Teacher/Educational Services Professional's Recognition Program. 

  • Erika Ehrlich, Woodside Avenue School
  • Ruth Weiss, High Mountain Road School
  • Stacy Raphael, Colonial Road School
  • Christopher Parr, Franklin Avenue Middle School

The Teacher Recognition Program was developed in 1985 for the purpose of acknowledging teachers such as yourself who exhibit outstanding performance, said Franklin Lakes School Superintendent Frank Romano in a release.

"The rationale for this program is based on the premise that teaching excellence is one of the most significant factors impacting student achievement and the quality of public schools," said Romano, adding that acknowledging excellence encourages other teachers to continue to strive towards this goal.

The 2012 selection committee was comprised of nine individuals, including a cross representation of teachers, administrators, and parents, according to Romano.
