🌟 Shining the Spotlight on TST's Finest 🌟 Meet Matt Hartz, P-TECH Business & Industry Liaison & Health Teacher! 💼📚 For Matt, nothing brings him more joy than witnessing his two children get to experience and explore the world around them. Beyond the classroom, he's been known to command the stage at karaoke nights, unleashing his inner Backstreet Boys enthusiast with friends. Although now those performances are a thing of the past. Yet, it's the prospect of innovation and growth that truly inspires him. We shine the staff spotlight on Matt for personifying the essence of the P-TECH spirit, exemplifying unwavering dedication to innovation and excellence. 👏🚀 #StaffSpotlight #MeetTheTeam #TSTBOCES #ConnectingMindsInspiringGrowth #BOCESProud

Today, TST Regional School Success had the honor of hosting the NYS Seal of Biliteracy Presentation Day, celebrating the linguistic talents of students from Dryden Central School District, Lansing Central School District, and Trumansburg Central School District! 📚🌟 The NYS Seal of Biliteracy honors students' proficiency in English and one or more world languages. Today, these students showcased their Culminating Projects, presenting entirely in their chosen world language before a panel of proficient judges. Not only did they deliver their presentations, but they also fielded questions from the judges, and were scored on a rubric for demonstrating proficiency across the three modes of communication- Interpretive, Interpersonal, and Presentational. 🎙️💬 We had students demonstrate their language skills in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Thai, and Khmer! 🇪🇸 🇫🇷 🇵🇹 🇹🇭 🇰🇭 If successful, these students will proudly receive the Seal of Biliteracy affixed to their diplomas and don the prestigious biliteracy medallion at graduation. With less than five percent of graduating seniors achieving this distinction, today marks an extraordinary accomplishment for these individuals. 🏆🎓 #NYSSB #BiliteracySeal #LanguageMatters #ConnectingMindsInspiringGrowth #BOCESProud
