Fourth grade members of the Student Leadership Team at Aquebogue Elementary School were eager to share their leadership skills by reading to other classes in the building.

Students decided to focus their read-alouds on books that celebrated autism because April is Autism Awareness Month. The books they chose were “A Friend Like Simon,” by Kate Gaynor, “The Girl Who Thought in Pictures,” by Julia Finley Mosca and “All My Stripes: A Story for Children with Autism,” by Shaina Rudolph.

Before reading to classes, the leaders practiced reading with each other and did research on autism to help them feel prepared and confident. Team adviser and fourth grade teacher Tami Koller said, “This was a great opportunity for the Student Leaders to be viewed as role models and to create a larger sense of community within the school building. Our leaders were beaming with pride after each time they read, and the thanks and appreciation they received from each class created a rewarding experience for all involved.”

As a culminating activity for a recent book study on supporting newcomer students, a team of teachers and administrators from Aquebogue Elementary School had the opportunity to discuss peer-driven change with author Mauricio Miller, founder of the Community Independence Initiative and a 2019-2020 visiting professor at Princeton University.

The conversation, facilitated by CEO of the Child Center of NY, Traci Donnelly, allowed the educators and administrators to explore ways that they currently empower students as they provide them opportunities to see their capabilities and instill dignity and confidence in them.

The discussion also encouraged the Aquebogue team to notice and support positive organic occurrences and practices happening in the classrooms and community. The conversation concluded with a promise to Mr. Miller to stay in touch as they encourage students to view themselves and their peers as essential resources for one another.
