So…what are NYSUT members saying about us?

I really learned a lot from this online seminar. Many of my preconceived notions were debunked. I now have accurate information that will help me better serve my students. My instructor kept me abreast as to what was going with Moodle and my assignments. She also provided me with timely feedback on the assignments I submitted. Cherese West, Teacher, Hempstead Schools

I took this seminar because I wanted to gain a better understanding of what academic language is and the important role it plays in the various stages of second language acquisition as well as in all content areas taught in the classrooms. The videos and the teacher reflections supported my understanding of the course content. I learned the importance of looking beyond the vocabulary. I acquired many strategies that promote academic language development. As a result, I was able to increase student interaction with academic language through meaningful and motivating activities in my integrated ENL classes. It was a great workshop! The assignments were challenging, but meaningful. Sebnem Ozsirkinti, Teacher, Valley Stream Public School

I took classes with you last spring and summer and [I] want to let you know how valuable the information learned and shared in your classes has been for me. I am a much more effective teacher with so many of my students basically because I better understand them and have great tools (so glad I used the journal) to refer to. I thought of you day one when I hung my new and improved expectation signs in the gym and locker room and the new placement of my white board with class info on it has made all the difference in my classroom management! Thank you for helping me to have a good and refreshing start to the school year! Jayne Maslin Katz, Teacher, Southhampton Public Schools

“Never before in my career have I ever thought so hard and so much about what I do..how I do it... am I doing it right...what should I be doing differently...it's giving me a headache! :-) However, when I had 24 parent teacher conferences on Tuesday, I felt so much more confident in speaking with the parents about their child because I truly felt that I understood their learning styles and preferences better than I have in previous years. I have become much more cognizant and aware of what is taking place in my classroom due to this course and these assignments. So thank you for designing such meaningful activities and teaching this old dog some new tricks.” -- Luise Percoco, Teacher, East Moriches UFSD

“I just attended a workshop today given by NYSUT ELT…We are all Intelligent; We Just Learn Differently…it was awesome!” -- Fran Rutigliano, Teaching Assistant, Clarkstown Teachers’ Association.

I would also like to add that the Multiple Intelligence course I took with Jane Turk was probably the most useful course I have taken. I came away with real strategies to help all learners work cooperatively through meeting their individual needs. It will certainly change how I teach my students in September. -- Mindy Anichich, Teacher, United Federation of Teachers.
