2018 Teacher of the Year Recipients!


Congratulations, Teachers of the Year 2018!

On Wednesday, May 23, Union County put on a great celebration hosted by Kean University to honor our 2018 Teachers of the Year.
Teachers, superintendents, and Board representatives from Union County school districts were invited to a breakfast celebration at the Kean STEM Building to collectively honor each district's teachers.
In Rahway, each building selects a teacher for this honor and this year the teachers were presented with a personalized memento (carved apple paperweight).
All of the Rahway teachers except Shannon Barnes were in attendance - Shannon stayed behind to catch her students up with their Driver's Ed class (delayed due to PARCC testing).
