Sachem High School East hosted the Scholastic Education Long Island Literacy Leaders’ Institute on Aug. 15, which provided 150 educators from numerous school districts across Long Island with a plethora of professional development opportunities.

With over 50 Sachem teachers in attendance, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham offered a warm welcome to all attendees before Elizabeth Oakes-Lani, an account executive from Scholastic, explained the agenda for the day’s enriching activities. The breakout sessions covered literacy topics including classroom culture, educational approach, 21st-century learning skills, independent reading and how to effectively harness the power of families to support learning. 

At the conclusion of the daylong event, the participants had the opportunity to reflect on the topics covered and engage in a question-and-answer period with the esteemed presenters.
