JFK Students Enjoy Night of Culture and Tradition

JFK Students Enjoy Night of Culture and Tradition

On the annual ENL Culture Night, English as a new language students at JFK came to the school with their families on the evening of Jan. 18 to celebrate holidays and cultures from around the world.

As each student arrived at the event, which was organized by ENL teachers Jordana Bogart, Rebecca Corbin and Kimberly Essig, they received a special “passport.” During the night, the students and their families visited five stations representing different holidays celebrated around the world: Christmas, Diwali, Hanukkah, Ramadan and Tet. At each station, students completed a craft; after each station was completed, they received a stamp in their passports. The families enjoyed music and refreshments in between stations.

“Culture Night is such a significant night for our ENL students and their families,” said District Administrator of ENL and World Languages Ashley Rosenberg. “Students are able to come together in an environment which highlights diversity, language and culture. It’s a night that reinforces a passion for learning about and celebrating others’ cultures and traditions.”

ENL Educators Present to TESOL Conference

ENL Educators Present to TESOL Conference
A team of six Deer Park English as a new language teachers and District Administrator of ENL and World Languages Ashley Rosenberg were recently selected by the New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages to present at the organization’s annual conference.

For the presentation, titled, “Creating Culturally Relevant and Globally Empathetic Lessons, K-12,” Rosenberg and teachers Marcella Biordi, Megan Boccard, Michelle Champlin, Kimberly Essig, Danielle Finocchiaro and Vanessa Pizzo compiled ideas and lessons they create to meet the needs of Deer Park'’ diverse English Language Learners. The seven educators were also given the opportunity to network with various ENL teachers and administrators from across the state.

“In addition to presenting information, we also had the opportunity to learn,” said Rosenberg. “Overall, presenting at the conference was a great opportunity and our team did wonderfully. I truly commend the teachers who took time out of their weekends to communicate their excellent ideas and lessons, which will benefit ELLs statewide.”
