Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of visiting E-Cubed Academy for their end of the year award celebration. During my visit, I was taken aback by the great work that the teachers at E-Cubed have done to build relationships with their students and improve their social and educational skills.
I attend E-Cubed Academy’s award ceremony almost every year. Last year, I met a student who was not able to fully communicate verbally with his peers or teachers. This year, I watched in amazement as the same student stood in front of his classmates and confidently gave a well-spoken speech.
This impressive young man is just one example of the great work that the teachers in Providence Public Schools do every day to change students’ lives and provide them with the structures and tools they need for success. I was impressed by all of the students I met on Tuesday who have achieved academic excellence and displayed great respect for their teachers.
As local and state leaders work together to create a stronger education system for our youth, we must remember to appreciate and support the many great educators we already have here in Providence. I would like to thank the teachers of E-Cubed Academy, and all of the teachers across the City of Providence for their dedication to the difficult work they do to provide our children with brighter futures.
