During Crisis, Finding the Teachable Moments

When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered the closure of all schools statewide to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Hofstra’s School of Education had approximately 135 student teachers placed throughout Long Island and the New York metropolitan area.

Jay Lewis, Associate Dean for External Relations, Field Placement and Recruitment, believed his aspiring teachers could be a critical resource as schools made the transition to digital learning. So he started working the phones, making calls to his contacts in local school districts – teachers, principals and superintendents – to make sure Hofstra students could continue their placements.

The result? 100 percent of those student teachers are continuing to teach online.
