Four Haverford School District teachers were recently recognized for their 25 years of service to the school district at a school board meeting on Nov. 15. Teachers honored at the meeting included Haverford Middle School math teacher Michael Braverman and fourth-grade teacher at Chatham Park Elementary School Patricia Hardy. Ronna Scheier, counselor at Haverford Middle School, and Mark Wangberg, art teacher at Haverford High School, were not present but recognized.
"These four teacher have stayed the course and invested thousands of hours to the lives of our children," said Superintendent William Keilbaugh at the school board meeting.
As part National Education Week, teachers are recognized by the school district for outstanding work and service to Haverford Township schools.
"This is one of the special nights during the year as we honor during American Education Week teachers who have at least put in 25 years of service to education and currently with us at Haverford–maybe some for their entire career, maybe some for part of it," said Keilbaugh.
According to Keilbaugh, math teacher Braverman has taught math at the middle school for 12 years and the remainder of his teaching was done in New Jersey.
Chatham Park teacher Hardy started at the gifted program at Manoa Elementary School and taught there for 17 years before transferring to Chatham Park Elementary.
