HOBOKEN - The Hoboken Board of Education honored six teachers from the city's five public schools on Tuesday night, awarding them with the title of "Teacher of the Year."
Each recipient received a proclamation from the district, as well as a standing ovation from the audience members at the meeting.
Elise Rosenberg was honored from Wallace School. Kenneth Turso, who is retiring at the end of this academic year, was awarded as the "Teacher of the Year" from Connors School. Sharlette Cullen, a teacher for 12 years, was recognized from Calabro School, and Elizabeth Schwartz was named "Teacher of the Year" from Brandt School.
At Hoboken High School, two teachers shared the "Teacher of the Year" distinction, Rachel Grygiel and Michelle Switaj.
Hoboken Superintendent Mark Toback also outlined potential maintenance plans for the schools throughout the district during the meeting, and the board voted to advertise more spots to potentially expand the "school choice" program, allowing students from other districts to attend Hoboken schools in the coming years.
