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.
