1. Staff Recognition: Ellen Estrella, 2020-2021 District Teacher of the Year
Recently Rhode Island Educators were honored at WaterFire in Providence. Among the honorees was our Mt. Hope High School Nurse Teacher, Ellen Estrella. She found herself in good company that night, as there were multiple MHHS grads also being recognized from the districts they now work in. In addition to activities, music and art installations, teachers were invited to carry torches to light the bonfire. Mrs. Estrella is the first School Nurse Teacher to be District Teacher of the Year! Please join Dr. Mara and Dr. Sanna in congratulating Mrs. Estrella on her recognition and dedication to the students and staff of our district.
