  • St. Matt's School Store Provides Work Experience during Pandemic

    At Southern Westchester BOCES’ St. Matthew’s School site, one of the formative experiences in the Therapeutic Support Program is off-site vocational training and skills development. Since the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic made that impossible this year, staff members came up with an alternate option: Open a school store where students can purchase rewards items and gain work skills.

    “We cannot go outside to work or interact with the community, so we are instead bringing the world of work and community practices to St. Matthew’s,” said Patrice Cookes, a teacher in the Therapeutic Support Program for Developmentally Delayed (TSP-DD) students.

  • Reflective Keynote Speaker Helps Educators Find “The Way Forward”

    In Janell Burley Hoffmann’s keynote presentation during the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center’s virtual TELL Awards ceremony, educators had the opportunity to pause and reflect on the past year from a professional and personal standpoint.

    On March 16, Ms. Burley Hoffmann – a consultant, author and founder of the Slow Tech Movement – led an interactive discussion with participants about what they learned during the COVID-19 pandemic and what will serve them well in the future.

    “This keynote is a reflection on what I am carrying forward,” said Ms. Burley Hofmann. “My offering is that you hold a space for yourself. The space we are creating together does not hurry. We need to hold onto the idea of ‘the way forward’ – it embodies the past, regenerates and grows from it.”

  • TLI Explores Creating Healthy Learning Spaces

    The goal of much of Robert Dillon's work is to expand the definition of what a “healthy building” means. Most school buildings are conceptually designed for learning, but not for health, he said. His hopes are to broaden how buildings are constructed and to transition to a model that focuses on the health and wellness of students, staff members and any residents who enter.

    “People want children to be in healthy buildings, but we need to expand its definition,” said Dr. Dillon, a longtime educator and thought leader who has served as teacher, principal and director of innovation. “The health of students and educators – both physical and emotional – are impacted by where they learn and teach. There’s an academic prowess to having a healthy building.”

    On Feb. 26, Dr. Dillon was the engaging keynote speaker at the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center’s Technology Leadership Institute Active-Con 2021. His presentation, “Designing Learning Spaces for Health and Wellness,” discussed emerging trends, why issues of space and wellness are currently magnified, and what it means to be in a healthy building.
