Rhode Island's Emily Caldarelli Is a Milken EducatorEmily Caldarelli (RI '16) | Paul Cuffee Lower School | Providence, RI | Oct 18, 2016
Hear that buzz in the gymnasium at Providence's Paul Cuffee Lower School? Rhode Island Commissioner of Education Dr. Ken Wagner is here to celebrate the school's achievements in social and emotional learning. But things get even more exciting when Wagner introduces Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, who tells the assembly that one of the very best teachers in the country is in this very room. When Foley surprises fourth-grade teacher Emily Caldarelli with Rhode Island's 2016-17 Milken Educator Award, Caldarelli's day turns into one she'll never forget.
