English Education Students Present at National Teachers Convention

In November, four SUNY Old Westbury graduate students in the Masters of Arts in Teaching, Adolescence Education – English Language Arts program traveled to Minneapolis, Minn. to attend the 105th National Council of Teachers of English annual convention, “Responsibility, Creativity, and the Arts of Language.” Under the guidance of Professor Nicole Sieben, the students prepared presentations and were eager to share their work, and network with more than 5,000 K-16 English teachers, graduate students, and scholars in the field. Kristin Cacchioli, Michael Filoramo, Lindsey Palumbo, and Dexter White were joined by graduate students from 20 other universities across the country as they presented their research projects at the conference session “The Future is Now: Exploring 21st Century Teaching Ideas with the Next Generation of English Teachers.” Read more at https://www.oldwestbury.edu/news/2918.
