Congratulations to Vanessa Williams! Vanessa is the Literacy Coach at Aquebogue.
Here is what Principal Phil Kent had to say about Vanessa:
Mrs. Vanessa Williams is an extraordinary Literacy Coach at the Aquebogue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District. She places the students’ and teachers’ needs above everything else. Her instruction for the students and teachers is strictly based on their needs. Her love of literacy and teaching permeates throughout our building and influences all teachers, staff members, and students to reach for higher standards. Vanessa takes great pride in coaching our teachers and staff members and sharing the most updated strategies. She consistently utilizes a variety of approaches to address the needs of our whole school and influences all to do their very best. Vanessa puts her heart and soul into her Literacy Coaching craft and every year the students’ and teachers’ working knowledge of literacy increases. Her coaching, lessons, and building-wide activities are always very well-planned and executed and motivate all to participate and learn.
