You may think teachers have the Summers off, but Long Island Teachers have the Summers on...
 
It’s a common misconception that educators spend all day at the beach, if they do, they are the lifeguards. Teachers run summer camps, teach extended coursework and coordinate enrichment programs in reading, science, and math. Teachers unions secure funding for school supplies and get books in the hands of their students. Have a Happy Summer Everyone!
 
My name is Patty Trongone, I teach Physics at Westbury High School. This summer I am Coordinating seven STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math enrichment programs for over 100 students in grades two through twelve. Our students are doing experiments on brine shrimp at the Cradle of Aviation. Summertime is Science time for me.
