From May 2-5, high school English teacher Matthew Woythaler attended the 2023 Marines Educators Workshop in Parris Island, S.C. along with over 60 educators primarily from New York and Maryland. He was made aware of the program by former student, Rafael Ferreira (Class of 2015), who became a Marine. Its purpose is to provide educators and other community influencers the opportunity to gain first-hand experience on how the Marine Corps transforms young men and women into U.S. Marines. These workshops also provide attendees with current information regarding Marine Corps recruit training and officer candidate school training practices and procedures, military job skills and opportunities, military lifestyle, and educational benefits available to Marines.

Dr. Christine Finn, superintendent of the Carle Place School District, was recently presented with the Nassau BOCES School Library System Administrator of the Year Award. This award from the Nassau BOCES School Library System, is granted to those who are considered models, supporters, advocates and inspirations to the field of librarianship.

Dr. Finn was nominated by Cherry Lane School librarian Elizabeth Fokas, along with fellow school librarians Marni Nelson (Rushmore Avenue School) and Lori Feit (Carle Place Middle/High School). Together, the three Carle Place librarians felt that Dr. Finn has supported the Plan of Service of Nassau School Library System by “encouraging and supporting district librarians to participate in conferences, workshops and liaison meetings.”

They also praised Dr. Finn for maintaining full-time librarians in all three schools in the district and including librarians as part of the district’s technology department. 

“We now have an advocate for our programs and meet as a department to work together,” Ms. Fokas said.

Congratulations, Dr. Finn!
