MS Teacher Maureen Nagle Awarded NETA’s Public Media Award

Moses Brown is excited to share that Middle School English Teacher Maureen Nagle has received a Public Media Award from The National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) for the project “Evening for Educators,” which she has led for Read Across Rhode Island, a community reading program of the Rhode Island Center for the Book.

NETA announced the recipients of the 53rd Annual Public Media Awards on January 25. Each year, the Public Media Awards celebrate NETA members’ “finest work in community engagement, content, education, and marketing/communications.”

Maureen is Education Chair at Read Across Rhode Island, where she shepherds educational programming for teachers across the entire state. As part of that work, Maureen and her committee have been organizing an “Evening for Educators” over the past few years. Last year’s three-part, Zoom-based event to support Rhode Island teachers in bringing the book Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds to their classrooms, was recognized for its excellence in the PMAs’ Educational Learning Events category.

The MB Community congratulates Maureen on this amazing accomplishment. Maureen’s work with Read Across Rhode Island has brought inclusive, diverse, and relevant books to the attention of communities across our state, and exemplifies how Friends values live and thrive at MB and far beyond.
