  • Success Without Boundaries: Ann Bongiorno Honored with a Successory Award

    Posted by Janet Bishop at 5/25/2017


    Ann Bongiorno, 3rd/4th Grade Teacher, was delighted to learn that her name had been drawn from a pile of “Successory” forms to receive a special gift honoring her contribution to student success at Mark Twain. Each Successory form thanked a particular teacher or education professional for helping that student “become a success.”

    Jainam thanked Ms. Bongiorno for helping him "present like a professional presenter. Before, I used to read from the screen and pause between. Now, I am an expert at pausing at the right time and memorizing my part of the project!" Principal Lewis Roberts added his congratulations.
