Recognizing The Teachers Of Prince William County Public Schools Gaining Certification From The National Board For Professional Teaching Standards July 13, 2015
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Prince William County Public School Division teachers who recently received certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The National Board is an independent nonprofit organization governed by classroom teachers, school administrators, school board leaders, governors and state legislators, higher education officials, teacher union leaders, and business and community leaders. The teachers have met the standards established by the National Board, and have undergone a rigorous application process that required they demonstrate the knowledge, skills and accomplishments that comprise teaching excellence. A Board Certified teacher supports a vision of teaching based on the following five core principles: Teachers are committed to students and their learning; Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students; Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning; Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience; and Teachers are members of learning communities. I would like to extend my personal congratulations to the following National Board Certified Teachers for receiving their respective certifications. Maureen Artist, Montclair Elementary School Dina Baird-Berberoglu, Samuel L. Gravely Elementary School Shawn Baugh, Triangle Elementary School Cynthia Brown, Montclair Elementary School Jennifer Carter, Minnieville Elementary School Allyson Davis, Marsteller Middle School Deborah Ellis, Minnieville Elementary School Megan Hostutler, Patriot High School Heather Mainwaring, Montclair Elementary School Franki Miller, Old Bridge Elementary School Kathryn Miller, Dale City Elementary School Michael Neall, Student Learning Joanne Ortiz, Marumsco Hills Elementary School Kimberly Papandrea, Special Education Matthew Ragghianti, Osbourn Park High School Kelly Riley, Swans Creek Elementary School Barbara Rohr, West Gate Elementary School Lori Sterne, Stonewall Jackson High School Lydia Stewart, Osbourn Park High School Wendee Sukanovich, Montclair Elementary School Rebecca Utter, Battlefield High School Mr. Speaker, I ask that my colleagues join me in commending these teachers for their commitment to education and professional development. The Prince William County Public School Division delivers a world class education due to the tireless efforts of teachers who make excellence the standard."

"Last night we had more than 150 people in attendance at the screening, which was cohosted by Representative Susan Davis from California. The creators of the movie were there, and U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith. What followed the documentary was even more impressive, and that was a lengthy and very passionate discussion about how much work we have to do on this front."
Remembering Trooper James A. Moen And Recognizing Megan Peters June 24, 2015
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"One of Trooper Moen’s children is Megan Peters, a spokesperson for the Alaska State Troopers. Megan‘s name is perhaps better known among Alaskans than her father’s was. But one thing that Alaskans may not know is that Megan plays a leading role in organizing the Alaska police memorial ceremony each May. While all Alaska’s law enforcement officers who gave their lives in the line of duty are recognized in this ceremony, the emphasis is on honoring those who passed in the preceding year."
