Kane's Tania Benedetto named teacher of the year
The Marlborough Freemasons of United Brethren Lodge and the Marlborough Public Schools are very pleased to announce that three Marlborough Public Schools educators have been chosen to receive teacher-of-the-year awards.

Kane kindergarten teacher Tania Benedetto has been named 2014 Teacher of the Year. Marlborough High School guidance counselor Steven Bishop and Whitcomb Middle School math teacher Karen Suvalskas have been named finalists.

Candidates for teacher of the year are nominated by their peers, then screened by the district’s administrative team. Recommendations are forwarded to the Masons, who determine the winners. Each is presented with an award and a stipend to be used in his/her classroom or department as he/she sees fit – no paperwork or strings attached.

The three awardees will be recognized at a reception and dinner at Jacobs Hall Masonic Lodge, 8 Newton St., on Thursday, May 15. A social hour will begin at 5 p.m., with dinner following at 6 p.m.

The public is invited to celebrate these dedicated professionals and highlight the great work being done in all of the city schools. Tickets are $25 each and are available at Marlborough schools’ office or by contacting Joe Delano at  or at (508) 460-8889.

Chinese students visit Marlborough High School

During the week of March 24, Marlborough High School hosted 10 Chinese students for six days as part of the Cambridge Institute of International Education. The tenth-graders shadowed MHS students, attended classes, and participated in activities to learn about American culture and share theirs with MHS.

A video (click here) compiled by MHS Mandarin Chinese Teacher Xiaoshu Jing highlights the week of experiences, which included a visit to Boston to experience the sights and sounds of the city.

Last fall, MHS applied to be a host school for international students, and the application was approved. Participation in the institute will bring wonderful perspectives to the school and will help MPS students increase their global knowledge as well as share the wonderful educational opportunities available in our schools. We hope this visit will lead to enrollment by international students at MHS and will facilitate the creation of a truly global community in the Marlborough schools.

We thank the MHS staff who worked to make this opportunity possible and especially our host families for their hospitality.
