Former Chelsea student and teacher speak at AP conference


A teacher and a former student from Chelsea High School were featured speakers at the College Board’s recent AP Annual Conference in Las Vegas. Rachel Barlage, an Advanced Placement teacher, and Bahiya Nasuuna, who graduated this past spring, were invited to speak after the Chelsea school district received notable recognition last February from the College Board, the organization that administers the SAT and AP tests. The district was named the College Board Advanced Placement Equity and Excellence District of the Year in the small district category for its success in expanding access to AP courses and improving AP exam performance. Barlage has taught at Chelsea High School for seven years. She is currently the lead writing teacher and her classes include AP English language and composition. Nasuuna is an Ugandan native who plans to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst. While at Chelsea High, she was secretary of the Chelsea chapter of the National Honor Society and was active in many extracurricular and academic programs. She took seven AP classes and numerous honors classes.
