He goes above and beyond for his college bound students every year.

Mentors and Models Criteria
Staff at our schools play a critical role in helping shape students into passionate, driven individuals. This role goes far beyond academic teaching; staff are constant mentors and role models for how students should live their best lives. We hope to recognize any staff member who has an outstanding influence on their school’s community and students. This is not limited to teachers.

Staff and students are invited to submit in any of the 7 categories of Beyond the Black and White to feature creative work and accomplishments. Learn more: www.framingham.k12.ma.us/beyondtheblackandwhite
