NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Thirty-eight faculty members were celebrated for achieving tenure at the New Rochelle Board of Education meeting on Tuesday.
The achievement buoyed the educators just in time to greet their students for the new school year in the following days.
"I am excited and proud to have reached this occasion," said Daniel Webster Magnet School special education teacher Cynthia Asiedu-Boateng, one of those who received tenure. "This is a nurturing community where we put the whole child first. That's one of the main reasons that I came here. They're so loving."
