The celebration recognized and thanked the outstanding educators across the country as well as recipients of National Teacher of the Year and State Teacher of the Year.

“Principal Glover has done an outstanding job leading Quitman Street Community School, and I join the district, his students, faculty and staff in thanking him for everything he is doing to provide an excellent education for Newark’s young people,” said Superintendent Christopher D.
