Elementary MAT mentor teacher wins teacher of the year award

Last week during a school-wide assembly at Pleasant View Elementary School, second grade teacher Claudia Jackvony was awarded by Providence Mayor Angel Taveras with the teacher of the year award. Pleasant View Elementary is part of the Providence Public School District. The assembly was billed as a recognition of students’ testing achievement, so the award announcement was a surprise. Although, with years of being recognized as a master teacher, beloved by colleagues, parents, students and student teachers, the Providence Schools 2014 teacher of the year award going to Mrs. Jackvony shouldn’t have been too surprising. She was a mentor for two Brown Elementary MATs this past year, in the fall and spring, respectively, and we hope will continue mentoring beginning teachers for years to come.

Congratulations to Mrs. Jackvony!
