NORTH PROVIDENCE – School Committee Vice Chairman Roderick E. DaSilva said he is humbled to recently receive two local endorsements from The North Providence Federation of Teachers Local 920 and the North Providence Firefighters IAFF Local 2334. Both have endorsed DaSilva in the upcoming Democratic primary on Sept. 8.
“Receiving these endorsements is extremely gratifying. It shows that our town’s professional first responders and my peers in the professional teaching ranks trust me to continue to represent our children and their families as well as the taxpayers of our town," said DaSilva.
"I have been a classroom teacher for 40 years, and in my world it has always been about the children. My ‘highly effective’ teacher evaluations reflect my commitment to all students. This child-centered attitude extends to my work on the School Committee where the URI Equity Institute was contracted to ensure curriculum access and equity for all students.”
