Alice Jean DiVincenzo, a Greenwich High School (GHS) teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), has been selected to receive the 2015 Connecticut Education Association’s (CEA) Humanitarian Award for Leadership in Recent Immigrant Educational Community Relationships.

An educator for 40 years, at least 30 of them with the Greenwich Public Schools (GPS), DiVincenzo received this honor as an individual who has “demonstrated leadership in resolving social and educational problems as they relate to recent immigrants.” Eligibility for this award requires individuals to have developed and/or implemented a school wide and/or community wide program that provides relief for recently arrived immigrants, secures funds and sources to provide education, increases public awareness and protects and advances the civil and human rights of the recent immigrants, and develops ESL instructional materials, multimedia programs, and/or curriculum.

DiVincenzo received this honor based on a nomination submitted by a colleague at Greenwich High School. She will be presented with the award at an awards ceremony during the CEA Representative Assembly on Friday, May 15, at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center in Uncasville.

DiVincenzo has been teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at GHS throughout her tenure with the Greenwich Public Schools. A previous recipient of the Greenwich Distinguished Teachers Award, she is the English Language Learner (ELL) Program Associate at GHS. She has been a staunch advocate for ELL students’ social-emotional and academic needs in Greenwich throughout her career.
