This year the graduating BWRSD class of 2017 selected their "Star" teacher from their Elementary, Middle, and High School. Mr. Brian Leger is the selected Rockwell Elementary School Star Teacher!!! It all started for Mr Leger his first day he was a substitute teacher. That day he fell in love with teaching and headed back to RWU to get his second degree in education! He wants to make a difference in the world and he feels teaching allows him to do just that. Working with the students is the best part of the job. He refers to his class as young adults and they rise to the occasion! He certainly has made a difference for several students! They stated that he pushed them to do better, he made them strive, achieve more then they thought they could and that he is awesome!! BWEF congratulates Mr Leger for making a difference in his classroom! Be a Star at the Bodacious Bee March 11 @ RWU!! For tickets bwedfoundation.org

New England has a proud tradition of reverence for education stretching back to before the founding of our country. This portrait, by Rhode Island native Gilbert Stuart, of our 2nd President reminds us of the reverence for education that many of our Founders shared. His words are as relevant today as at any point in our country's history. As we enjoy the day off from school with our kids, let us spare a thought for the teachers planning lessons, procuring supplies, grading papers, or any of the other numerous background activities that benefit our children daily. We're committed to strengthening education in our district, but we need your help to do it. Happy Presidents' Day!

For those unfortunate souls unable to attend, there are other opportunities to get involved. One of the easiest is with our raffle. Great prizes from local businesses that offer a huge return on a minimal investment if you win.

This year at the 9th Annual Bodacious Bee ⭐️ Be a Star the Class of 2017 chose their Star Teachers. The teacher selected from Guiteras School is Karen McCanna. She has always loved working with children. In her high school years she would volunteer at Rhode Island Hospital in the pediatric unit working with sick children who were hospitalized for extended lengths of time. She went off to college, and then grad school to get her degrees in special education and elementary education because she wanted to teach and make a positive impact on children's lives. "The children I teach never cease to impress me, it is the most amazing experience in the world when you see the lightbulb go on in a child's eyes, that is when you know you have made a difference. Each and every child is different, and they all learn in their own unique way. Finding out how to do that is the challenge, and I look forward to that challenge each and every day." The students that are in the Class of 2017 are some of the most amazing young adults with a bright future ahead of them. She is honored and humbled they chose her for this award. Mrs. McCanna has worked throughout the district but is back at Guiteras where she calls home. She loves the small school feel, the community that surrounds her, and the teacher support she receives. She is part of an incredible team. BWEF congratulates Karen for making a difference in the lives of students! March 11 @ RWU Karen is the Guiteras Star Teacher!! #BWEFBB9 Tickets available at bwedfoundation.org
