I was born and raised in East Greenwich and am a product of the public school system. I can honestly say that the education that I received in the 90’s and early 2000’s has proved invaluable in both my personal and professional successes. The lessons that I learned inside and outside of the classrooms of Frenchtown, Eldredge, Cole, and the High School not only prepared me for further education but also for the unexpected hallways and playgrounds of life.
That being said, the education and guidance we all received from EG would be nothing if it weren’t for the attentive, compassionate, and wildly talented educators that we were privileged to learn from. The relationships that were built between students and teachers here were unmatched to those of our peers in neighboring towns and (I later figured out in my secondary education) in competing educational systems.
The East Greenwich teachers are our preparers, our partners, our coaches, our advocates, and our friends – I fully support them in their contract negotiations and believe we need to do everything in our power to continue to attract the best and the brightest to work in this community.
