Mary Kay Worth presented a skill-building workshop at the Fall Leadership Summit for the New York State Council of School Superintendents Sept. 27-29. Worth, a retired superintendent, is an adjunct professor in St. Bonaventure’s School of Education. She presented “Engaging Students and Teachers in Storytelling, Writing, and Technology ~ Cultivating Authors,” at the summit. Participants were able to explore their own storytelling capabilities as well as how to start an author-in-residence program at their school. Worth serves as an author-in-residence at Washington West Elementary School in Olean. Her skillset includes connection to the Common Core Curriculum and building text sets. She credits the Elementary Education Department Field Block program and her exceptional colleagues for enhancing her skills that have opened new doors.
On Oct. 2, Dr. Anne-Claire Fisher and Dr. Paul Brawdy, with seniors Micaela Young and Nicole Dailey, presented at the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) in New Orleans. They presented on the preliminary results of joint research pursued during the spring semester of 2015 with six St. Bonaventure education undergraduate and graduate students (Samantha Arias, Nicole Dailey, Chloe Laundrie, Maria Liotta, Micaela Young and Jessica Zummo).
The presentation was titled “The other side of otherness: Fitting in or branching out?” and it was well received.
