Lambda Chapter Program: First of the New Year Written by Catherine Fortunato
Lambda Chapter Program First Vice President, Susan Muniz organized the program “Teaching Virtually: Best Practices and Challenges” for presentation via Zoom on January 14, 2021. The panel discussion included five active educators. It was special to us as the speakers were all Lambda sisters, one of whom is recognized as a DKGNJ Induction Committee Chair, Carol Boehm, and four newly inducted sisters. The presenters were: Carol Boehm, Music Teacher in Red Bank School District, Darlene Tammara, Transition Teacher from Matheny School, Felicia Querrey, Art Teacher from Matheny School, Lynn Rubinfeld, Speech Language Specialist from Piscataway Township School District, and Teresa Morelli, Supervisor of Academics at Somerset County Vocational Technical HS and the Academy for Health and Medical Sciences. Quotes from Lambda Sisters: "Thank you, Susan, for organizing and hosting the virtual teaching program and to the presenters for providing the learning opportunities for our children. They are the sunshine and the hope during these confining days of the pandemic.” Michele Contala
“What an ‘eye opener’ that amazing event provided. Boy, our sisters are certainly stellar education leaders on the forefront of this ever-changing landscape. I was so impressed and proud of them. Their teacher hearts beat passionately!” Dr. Barbara Glazewski
"I thought last night’s meeting was terrific. I loved hearing our sisters speak about their experiences with virtual teaching. So much talent and dedication!" Joan Stuart
"It was so wonderful to be a part of it and I enjoyed listening to all of the different virtual experiences. It certainly takes a village and I love how we all learn from each other in order to give our students the best possible learning experiences." Darlene Tammara
The program was topical and most of all impressive. Each and every presentation was unique yet shared a commonality of all doing the best for their students. Kudos to our educators.
