December 2018 Recipient:

Robert L Bailey IV Elementary

"It is with great pleasure that New England Basecamp would like to recognize the Summit Learning team
from Robert L Bailey IV Elementary with the NE Basecamp Trailblazer Award.
The Trailblazer Award recognizes a team of educators who have paved the way for others in their district
and/or state in the implementation of personalized learning. NE Basecamp has been impressed by team
leadership and the success they have had in their own elementary classrooms. They have served as a
model of personalized learning implementation for New England Basecamp on various learning tours and
training sessions by sharing their honesty and hard work with educators from across the region.
The enthusiasm of the team is remarkable and can only be outshined by their expertise and willingness to
help other educators in and out of their district. Their professional accomplishments not only benefit their
students but have impacted teacher efficacy and student achievement across Rhode Island.
Barbara Gardner, Robin Sampson, Claudine Gaspar, Brenda Slauenwhite and Carolina Creel
embody New England Basecamp’s vision of educators across New England ‘Learning From and With
Each Other’ by assisting other educators bravely seeking to shift the paradigm of teaching and learning
with the implementation of personalized learning in the classrooms.
These outstanding educators are an asset to Providence and New England Basecamp’s cohort schools,
and we wish to recognize them and all of the Providence Public School Department’s hard work and
efforts to provide each student the opportunity to engage and benefit from a high-quality education.
To the Robert L Bailey IV Elementary team: On behalf of the directors and coaches of New England
Basecamp, and all those who have embraced personalized learning through your efforts, I thank you for
your dedication and efforts to reimagine teaching to attain 
real lasting change in our profession."​
