Irondequoit High School business teachers Louis DiCesare, Jeanine Lent and LaVon Bucciarelli have received the Gold Star Teacher Award from W!se for the 2017-18 school year. They are among just 556 teachers from 27 states honored.

DiCesare, Lent and Bucciarelli are also advisors for Irondequoit's award-winning DECA Club. DECA is an international student organization that enhances preparation for college and careers by providing co-curricular programs that integrate into classroom instruction, applying learning in the context of business, connecting to business and the community and promoting competition.

To be considered for the Gold Star Award, a teacher must have achieved a 93 percent passing rate in at least one class on either the Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 W!se Financial Literacy Certification Test. Teachers will be honored at W!se’s annual MoneyPOWER Conference for Financial Education in New York City on November 6. W!se stands for Working in Support of Education.
