As a child of Fidel Castro’s Cuba, the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Cuban Missile Crisis was a teachable moment seized by Gisela Gugger, a World Language teacher at Livingston High School, who reflects on this historic event with students and essay published in the Boston Globe.
As educators and parents, we are forever looking for those teachable moments that bring a fresh perspective and voice to the lessons at hand.
This week, schools will bring a Drug Free life to a new level for our students with Red Ribbon events presented by the LHS Guidance Department, Livingston Municipal Alliance Committee, and Livingston Police Department.
Livingston’s schools are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students, whether drugs and alcohol, bullying, school violence, or another of our social ills. Students at Mt. Pleasant and Harrison helped stuff a bus with food for the hungry. Our youngest students are learning about fire safety. At Burnet Hill, where students annually memorialize their commitment to "Be a Hero,” they formed a giant heart for a photo-op on the school’s blacktop to symbolize how much they ‘love’ heroes.
As schools, parents and our Livingston community continue to help provide the lessons that keep our children’s best interests at heart, we will also continue to find new ways to seize those teachable moments.
