Two VCMS English Teachers Present at Conference

Terri Weiss and Vincent Fino, two 8th Grade English Language Arts teachers at Valley Central Middle School, have recently returned from this year’s New York State English Council Conference, held in Albany, NY. Mrs. Weiss and Mr. Fino presented their workshop, “Finding Voice in Refugees.” The workshop focused on creating researched, empathy-building narratives based on real-world research their students did on the current global refugee crisis. In addition to this honor, Mrs. Weiss received a mini-grant for her work with early-career teachers through the Hudson Valley Writing Project and SUNY New Paltz. Mrs. Weiss has worked with our newest teachers at our Viking Induction Program.
