Mountain Ridge High School teachers become certified by the National Board


DEER VALLEY –  Two teachers at Mountain Ridge High School, Elisabeth Borchers and Alexis LaDuca, have recently earned their National Board Certification.
National Board-Certified teachers are invaluable to Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) as mentors to their colleagues and for their ability to provide guiding input for curricular decisions. This rigorous, peer-reviewed process ensures that board-certified teachers have proven skills to impact learning and advance student achievement.
Borchers has been with the district for 16 years, and through her National Board journey, she says that she has become a stronger teacher who is more strategic about helping her students achieve their academic goals.
LaDuca has been with the district for 21 years and is in her twenty-second year of teaching.  She said that the National board process was the most challenging yet inspiring journey she has had in her professional career and saw immediate positive impacts in her classroom.
Congratulations to National Board-Certified Teachers Elisabeth Borchers and Alexis LaDuca!
