THE BRONX - One Bronx teacher has earned national recognition after being picked for a prestigious summer research fellowship.

April Ho, a freshman science teacher at New World High School in Wakefield, was chosen for the STARs Fellowship, which stands for Siemens Teachers as Researchers.

The fellowship sent Ho to Washington, D.C. with only 20 other science teachers in the entire country to do research and to learn new, creative ways of educating students.

Ho said the skills she learned have already helped her back in the classroom. She also plans to spend a $300 stipend she received to start a computer science class for seniors.
