Teaching Excellence

Our fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Heather Strout, is the 2016 recipient of the Diman Teaching Excellence Prize. The award is voted on by Pennfield faculty and presented annually to the teacher who best inspires students to pursue academic excellence with joy and boundless enthusiasm.

The prize is named in honor of Rev. John Hugh Diman, a lifelong educator dedicated to teaching children in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. He founded the Diman Vocational School in Fall River, St. George’s School, and Portsmouth Abbey School.

Congratulations, Mrs. Strout!
