American Classroom Management

Dr. Rocco Tomazic
Superintendent of Linden Schools, New Jersey

Project DCLT's first Friday night forum of the 2009-2010 school year was held Friday, Oct. 16, from 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in Pless Hall Lounge at New York University.  More than 50 pre- and in-service teachers learned practical tips for surviving in a school, from relationships with principals and fellow teachers to managing students. Dr. Tomazic shared how his school district involved the whole district and raised community awareness and support for the Chinese language program by holding a "China Night" performance and fashion show. Dr. Tomazic also spoke about Exchange Programs to China.
