During the course of over 35 years as an educator in the Warwick Public School system, Richard Fucci has amassed quite a few memories, but there is one memory in particular, he says, that sums up his educational philosophy. "This was maybe a little less than 20 years ago," he said casually, "and we were doing a unit on Shakespeare.I read a passage out loud to the class, and when I finished, they applauded." Later that day, Fucci experienced a realization in his office. "I was thinking about what had happened earlier and it actually made me angry.I thought, ‘That was all wrong.They should not be applauding me; I should be applauding them." Throughout his decades of experience at Pilgrim and Toll Gate High Schools as an English teacher and long-time head of the Toll Gate English Department as well as teaching positions at the University of Rhode Island, Rhode Island College and the Community College of Rhode Island, Fucci has been a tireless advocate of student success.Principal of the Warwick Summer School program since 1992, Fucci officially retired from Warwick public schools last week at the conclusion of this summer's session. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island in 1967, Fucci began his career in education at Pilgrim High School, but moved over to the brand new Toll Gate facility in 1972 to work under then-principal Shapiro. "I was very impressed with the singular vision that he had for Toll Gate," Fucci said."It struck me that this would be a great place to work and teach." Fucci assumed the role of English Department head at Toll Gate in 1986 and has left a substantial legacy to both students and fellow educators. When asked about his plans beyond this summer, Fucci says he plans to relax "a little" but doesn't plan on being a full-time retiree. "I plan to keep active when it comes to education," he said. If his current activities are any indication, there will be no shortage of ways to keep busy; despite his retirement, Fucci is still affiliated with Rhode Island Academic Decathlon, the "Rhode Island Council of English Teachers Newsletter" and the National Council of Teacher of English, among other organizations. "In many ways, these 36 years have gone by very quickly," Fucci said.
