It is always exciting to hear about our staff’s personal success and this time, Rainbow Community School wants to congratulate our very own sixth grade teacher, Jennifer Armocida! Jennifer’s project, “Better Business: Socially Beneficial Entrepreneurship,” was selected by the Freedoms Foundation to receive their highest award for excellence in enterprise education. The Freedom Foundation recognizes educators for their innovative efforts to help young people better understand the function and benefits of America’s private enterprise system.
Jenny’s sixth-grader students each create a socially responsible business. Her young entrepreneurs learn how to write a business plan, apply for loans, write a marketing plan and more. The most exciting part is the actual launch of their businesses — some become very successful. This year, Jennifer’s project was selected as one of the best in the nation and will receive a formal recognition and a cash award during a special award ceremony in November2015.
Congratulations, Jennifer, for this award! We are very happy you are a part of Rainbow Community School.
