• Commitment to Inclusion Shows in Outreach Efforts

  • SUNY Oswego’s commitment to serving and including all learners emanates from the president’s office through the School of Education and its PK-12 and community partners. Curriculum and Instruction Chair Marcia Burrell cites numerous programs available to support candidates—from federal grants to AACTE’s Holmes Program—but personal connections and outreach are essential to guide students to the best supports. TESOL candidate Tuyet Nyugen credits Center for Urban Schools Director Pat Russo with walking her through the steps to accomplish her goal: “I just want to be an ESOL teacher because I am an English language learner myself.”
