PATERSON, NJ - College Achieve Paterson Charter School has selected Ms. Porsha Haynes, 5th Grade Math Teacher, as the school’s nominee for the Department of Education’s Educator of the Year award.

Ms. Haynes has had a tremendous impact on student achievement and school culture. Anyone who steps foot inside her classroom will experience the magic and excitement of teaching and learning. Her instruction embodies student engagement, impeccable classroom environment, and rigor in which anyone would find inspiration. Ms. Haynes is an asset to the College Achieve Organization.

Ms. Haynes along with selected Passaic County School Educators are now nominees for the County Educator of the Year. Should she win at that level Ms. Haynes will compete with the other 12 County Educators in the running for State Educator of the Year.

CAPCS is confident that Ms. Haynes deserves the title.
