TOC II Spotlight: SUNY Old Westbury
We featured this TOC II spotlight in our October 2018 newsletter
Culturally Responsive Teaching in the Classroom
The TOC II interns from the School of Education at SUNY College at Old Westbury engaged in a year-in-review seminar. The featured speaker, Kevin Boston-Hill, shared anecdotal stories with the interns, providing insights on how to utilize their mentor relationships effectively and how to practice Culturally Responsive Teaching in the classroom. Boston-Hill has been in the education field for over 22 years, holding various positions in elementary and middle school classrooms and administration. Most recently, he served as a consultant for The New York City Department of Education working with the NYC Men Teach initiative.
The seminar is one of many professional learning opportunities available to TOC II interns during the course of the school year. In addition to inviting experienced educators to speak with the students, seminars encompass a multi-disciplinary, hands-on training program designed to help the TOC II interns grow their professional repertoire.
