Corey Edmiston is a special ed teacher at the Tynan School in Southie. At the beginning of the school year, Edmiston organized monthly trips with his 10 students to Joseph’s Bakery. The purpose of these trips was to help his students – most diagnosed with Autism – to learn life and community engagement skills. It was a positive experience all around!
“Joseph’s Bakery has been a wonderful model of how a business can be inclusive of all members in our community, we are very grateful for them as a business and grateful for them as models of community,” said Edmiston.
After reaching out to the Mayor’s office, a representative came out and gave all of our students an award and delivered a Proclamation to Joseph’s Bakery – announcing that June 25th is officially Joseph’s Bakery Day in the City of Boston! See proclamation below:
“ I, Martin J. Walsh, Mayor of the City of Boston, do hereby proclaim June 25, 2018 to be…Joseph’s Bakery Day in the City of Boston “ .
On Monday, June 25th, Joseph’s Bakery, a beloved part of South Boston, was cited by the Mayor’s Office for its partnership with the Boston Public Schools through Mr. Corey Edmiston’s Special Education class at the Joseph P. Tynan Elementary School.
During the 2017-2018 school year, during a 10-month collaboration period, Joseph’s Bakery was an integral part of Mr. Edmiston’s goal of exposing students to “life-skills” through a “Community Skills Program”.
Joseph’s Bakery has demonstrated all the values that the City of Boston and its citizens cherish. Embracing, and displaying diversity and inclusiveness and to all community members. All residents of Boston should be proud of this landmark community business for setting the example for all of us to follow! Way to go!
Perfect excuse to go grab an iced coffee and a cupcake to say thank you to Joseph’s for being such an awesome part of our neighborhood!
