From Dr. Josephine Salvador, Executive Director, New York State Master Teacher Program
I write today to extend on-line programming through August 31. All NYSMTP-PD must be virtual; no gatherings for NYSMTP-PD are permitted in-person on or off the SUNY host campus.
This statewide program decision is based on current health and safety protocols, including a review of current campus-specific guidelines for in-person gatherings in the spring and summer.
Special thanks to Master Teacher Emeritus Lon Knappenberger for sharing his entertaining and thought provoking presentation Creatures of Light and Darkness.
One Master Teacher's takeaway was this:
I always tell my students I love them, but I will be more specific based upon Lon's talk: "I care about you unconditionally. I will never give up on you. I see greatness in you."
Special thanks go to Dr. Patrick Campbell and Ms. Connie Ervin of Aunt Connie’s Ed-U-Kitchen for their contributions to making our Earth Day Cohort meeting an engaging and informative experience!
