Providence names teacher of the year

COURTESY PROVIDENCE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
LILLIAN FEINSTEIN AT SACKETT STREET ELEMENTARY School music teacher Wayne Kilcline was named the Providence Public Schools Teacher of the Year in a surprise ceremony Tuesday morning.
Posted 6/4/13

PROVIDENCE – Elementary school music teacher Wayne Kilcline was named Providence Public Schools Teacher of the Year at a surprise ceremony Tuesday morning, Providence Schools announced.

Mayor Angel Taveras announced the news at a school assembly to unsuspecting students and staff members, who believed he was coming to watch a musical performance at Lillian Feinstein at Sackett Street Elementary School.

Kilcline, who has spent his 17-year career completely at Feinstein-Sackett, was selected in a multi-stage process in which school and community members submitted nominees and a selection committee then asked top candidates to submit essays, resumes, and letters of recommendation.

This is the second year in a row that the school system has selected a teacher of the year after nearly a decade when the honor was not awarded.

Kilcline will next represent Providence in the statewide teacher of the year competition, with the Rhode Island winner moving on to the national competition.

Also in attendance at the announcement Tuesday morning were Superintendent Susan F. Lusi, Providence School Board President Keith A. Oliveira, representatives from the Providence Teachers Union and Principal Jose Valerio.
