Congratulations to Primacy math teacher Ms. Joanne Ward for becoming a National Board Certified Teacher.   Becoming certified through the National Board is an arduous and demanding accomplishment. To become nationally certified teachers must pass 10 rigorous exams along with creating more than four portfolios and six exercises for assessing student content.  Ms. Ward joins an elite group of teachers as National Board statistics indicate that fewer than 3% of teachers who hold a state license in the USA hold national board certification.
