East Providence Teacher, Jennifer Graham, Praised by State Commissioner


In her “Commissioner's Memo to Teachers” on Monday morning, Commissioner of Education Infante-Green included a paragraph in her newsletter about East Providence teacher Jennifer Graham: “Shout out to Ms. Jennifer Graham who is the secondary technology and intervention coach in East Providence. Ms. Graham has been a positive influence on social media for all teachers throughout the week. She has shared multiple strategies for streamlining a virtual classroom as well as self-care tips for educators. Ms. Graham also participated in the #see10do10 push-up challenge and encouraged many other East Providence educators to participate. Keep up the amazing work! You are an inspiration, Ms. Jennifer Graham,” writes Rhode Island Commissioner of Education Angelica Infante-Green.

The Commissioner also told Rhode Island teachers, “Congratulations to all of you for a tremendous start to our statewide commitment to distance learning. I know that none of this has been easy, and that is why it so remarkable how much you have accomplished in so short a time.

We are making history in Rhode Island. I wish that I could visit every virtual classroom, talk with every teacher, drop in on every family, bring a Dunkin’ to every principal, and hug every staff member who is stepping up to help make school happen. Instead, I have recorded a short video message to you all.

Please know that I am thinking of all of you as we head into the next phase of distance learning. Even as you prepare the next set of lesson plans, make sure to take every chance to recharge your batteries – especially next week when we have a four-day weekend across the state.

We are all in this together, and I am grateful to be part of this phenomenal all-state team.”
