We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Amanda DiPasqua from East Vincent Elementary has been selected as the 2019 Owen J. Roberts School District finalist for the Citadel Heart of Learning Award.
The Citadel Heart of Learning Award is a nationally-recognized program through Citadel Banking and the Chester County Intermediate Unit. The award is designed to honor and thank Chester County’s teachers while raising awareness of the impact on students, families, and the entire community.
Today, March 5, 2019, Citadel representatives surprised East Vincent Elementary School teacher, Mrs. DiPasqua, with the news in her classroom. Her students joined in congratulating her. Mrs. DiPasqua will receive a $500 award to purchase supplies or other items for her classroom, and her students were building a wish list as soon as they heard this news. Nominations for Mrs. DiPasqua described her as a dedicated teacher who “gives her heart and soul to her profession, students and coworkers”. One nomination read, “I nominate this teacher for many reasons. But the most important reason is she cares. She cares by caring that we all succeed, she cares that we are successful, she cares that we learn valuable skills and finally, she cares that we have fun.” On May 7, 2019, finalists from all school districts in Chester County will gather at the award banquet for final awards.
East Vincent Elementary School Principal, Ms. Christine Seeley, offered, "Mrs. DiPasqua shares her love of learning with the entire EV community. She inspires students and staff to become lifelong learners."
Please join us in congratulating East Vincent Fifth Grade Teacher, Mrs. Amanda DiPasqua!
