Westchester High School advanced placement English teachers Terry Mernin and Robert Rojas have been selected to participate in the annual Reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) examinations during the month of June in AP English Language.
The AP Reading is a forum in which academic dialogue between secondary school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.
“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, vice president of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching.”
Mernin and Rojas are participating in the examinations from Wednesday, June 10th through Thursday, June 18th.
Westchester High chemistry teacher Sherman Lambert was also selected to read AP chemistry.
Over 10,000 AP Readers from various universities and high schools evaluated more than 2.7 million examinations from 37 AP courses.
“We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Terry Mernin, Robert Rojas and Sherman Lambert,” Packer said.
“Each year the AP program, sponsored by the College board, gives more than one million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and, based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.”
