During the April 20 Board of Education meeting, art teacher Michelle Block was granted tenure, one of the most important accomplishments of a teacher’s career, effective Sept. 1, 2017.

Mrs. Block has taught art at both the Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center and Winthrop Avenue School since 2014. She has also accrued more than 400 hours of additional professional development and has been influential in preparing and selecting student-artwork for the annual Bellmore Star Arts Gallery.  

Bellmore Administrators Association representative and Shore Road Principal Patrice Matthews said, “Thanks so much for sharing your talent with the students of Bellmore.” In addition, teacher David Reilly, who represents the Bellmore Faculty Association described Mrs. Block “not only as a talented artist, but a talented teacher.”
