What do a college professor, a doctor, a detective, a scientist, a businessman and an ASL interpreter have in common?
They are all parents of first graders in the Port Jefferson School District!
Allison Giannusa’s, Miegan Rowett’s and Laura Kelly and Paige Lohmann’s classes invited parent volunteers to host centers to share their careers and how they contribute to the community. The students were very engaged and asked thoughtful questions, viewed instruments, graphs and more that the parents provided.
This event complemented the first grade social studies curriculum, to encourage students to gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the different components of a working community.
Thank you to community members Dr. Ansari (philosophy professor), Dr. Berges (physician), Mr. Leavey (detective), Dr. Luk (scientist/professor), Mr. Peters (tech start-up company) and Mr. Sheprow (ASL interpreter) for sharing your talents and professionalism with our students!
