R.I. Secondary  Transition & Employment First Twitter Feed

One characteristic of extraordinary teachers is that they're not fazed by kids who challenge them; indeed, they welcome this. They're willing to reconsider what they've said, secure enough not to need to have the last word, & aware that arguing may help to sharpen kids' thinking.

Excited to be co-leading our awesome RI Team w/ @Riebate75 advocating 4 IDEA funding, strengthening the pipeline of special educators, and mental health matters! @davidcicilline #SELS2021 @SenWhitehouse @SenJackReed @JimLangevin @ameyer1026 👏👏👏👏

Last month, SkillsRI and Partnership for Rhode Island brought forth a logo design challenge to public high schools across Rhode Island. Over 50 students participated and students from Coventry High School as the design contest winners.

Congratulations and great work!

“While some of the most visible efforts to continue the fight focus on changing ableist habits and attitudes, the most harmful and persistent barriers disabled people face are still distinctly structural.” - @AndrewPulrang @Forbes https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewpulrang/2021/06/14/fighting-ableism-is-about-much-more-than-attitudes-and-awareness/?sh=1e18237a19c0

A wonderful celebration today for our EG students at West Bay Collaborative Transition Academy. Heartfelt words about each graduate and well-deserved recognition of personal growth. So proud! @RITransition @ameyer1026 #TransitionsMatter #BrightFutures
