We are happy to share the exciting news that Rosarian Academy teacher, Mildred Acosta, was recently named Educator of the Year in the private school category for Palm Beach County by Palm Beach Illustrated magazine. In the 2023-24 school year, there are 146 private schools in the county, which serve over 31,000 students. Mrs. Acosta and her son, Santino, volunteered at the Kijana Global Innovation School in the summer of 2022. Mrs. Acosta collaborated with a Kijana school teacher, Ms. Mercy Amoke, to develop a  hands-on environmental learning program using the Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax as a base. We are grateful for her service to both the Kijana Global Innovation School students and community and to Rosarian Academy students and community and to our shared values of international collaboration.
