WAPPINGERS FALLS, N.Y. -- Bob Wood is at the top of the class.

Wood, who teaches art at Roy C. Ketcham High School, was named New York State Art Teacher of the Year by the New York State Association of Teachers of Art. Wood has been teaching at Wappingers since 1987.

At Ketcham, Wood has all of his students keep a reflective portfolio of their individual work allowing students to analyze and self-reflect on their work, the district said.

Students use cross-curricular skills to accomplish this work by writing in journal style on their accomplishments and presenting their observations and findings to others, the district said.

Wood has facilitated monthly broadcast of student-based media production, via web, internal transmission, YouTube, Vimeo, Cablevision, and Verizon Fios, the district said. A public service announcement about cyberbullying that Wood facilitated aired on WPIX in 2010.
