Ms. Molinari is a Champion of Play

  1. Updates

Safe and healthy play would not be possible at the Winship Elementary School in Brighton without Bridget Molinari. This is Ms. Molinari’s third year teaching K1 students at the Winship. Ms. Molinari always brings a positive and playful energy to her class and to the playground during recess.

Ms. Molinari always engages with students during Playworks Class Game Time, modeling good behavior and sportsmanship.

“Ms. Molinari loves learning new games and works hard to incorporate our Class Game Time lessons into her own classroom,” says Lesley, Playworks Coach at the Winship.

Ms. Molinari is a true champion of play at her school. You can often find her leading games at recess, and she is spearheading efforts to make sure Playworks can return to the Winship next year. She is currently brainstorming fundraising initiatives and leading a grant writing effort among faculty and staff.

We aren’t the only ones who have noticed Ms. Molinari’s hard work at the Winship. According to Principal Mona Ford:

“Bridget Molinari has been committed to meeting the various needs of students and to increasing the opportunities that students have to learn and experience their community.  She has worked on strengthening school culture for students, staff and families in various ways, including serving on various school committees and leadership teams. Ms. Molinari’s contributions to the Winship School are greatly appreciated!

Ms. Molinari is an incredible role model who works hard to create a fun and inclusive school environment for her students. We are grateful for rock star school staff members like Ms. Molinary whose hard work make Playworks’ programming possible.
