I am the Coordinator of Project PATCH, the K-12 Law and Civic Education Program of the Northport - East Northport UFSD. I am also an instructor with the School of Professional Development in the Educational Leadership Program at Stony Brook University. My interest is in Civic Education, especially related to the First Amendment, students' rights, teachers' rights, and improving understanding of our laws, our Constitution and the rights and responsibilities of citizens in our democracy. I am fortunate to have a long term partnership between with the Law, Youth and Citizenship Program of the New York State Bar Association which provides wonderful opportunities to lead professional development institutes / workshops that empower teachers to utilize effective Law-Related instructional content to improve students' civic knowledge and civic engagement. See www.civicspdny.org for our upcoming Summer 2015 professional development opportunities on Long Island, Syracuse, Albany and White Plains.

As has been our practice over the years, all of the new membership fees in the month of May will be donated to a worthy charity. This year we have chosen LI Cares. Please consider this worthy charity.
Founded by the late Harry Chapin, Long Island Cares, Inc. brings together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry and food insecure on Long Island and, to the best of our ability, provides for the humanitarian needs of our community. Their goals are to improve food security for families, sponsor programs that help families achieve self-sufficiency, and educate the general public about the causes and consequences of hunger on Long Island. Their vision is “A Hunger Free Long Island”.
