Teacher promotes character education in schools
Local teacher Janet Vinciguerra is awarding scholarships to fellow teachers again this year to attend a national character education conference in Washington, D.C., in October. Last year’s recipients from Rocky River, Avon Lake and Cuyahoga Falls attended, gained strategies and shared 10 “best ideas” with their faculty.
Positive school cultures are created by intention. Bullying and social issues in our schools can be turned around. This year Janet joined efforts with the Character Education Partnership to provide the framework and success model that results in schools where respectful, responsible students walk the halls.
Janet has 30 years of teaching experience with her master's degree in guidance and counseling from John Carroll University. She also offers workshops to organizations, schools, churches, libraries, and wellness programs to help students rise to higher levels of behavior with effective attitudes to help them succeed.
Teachers who are interested in applying for a scholarship to attend the National Forum on Character Education, Oct. 24-27, in Washington, D.C., should visit www.vinciconsulting.us.
A dinner party will be held May 29 at Behind the Woods Restaurant in Rocky River to raise funds for the scholarships for northeast Ohio teachers.
