Students Gain Real-World Knowledge From Experts in the Classroom

Friday, March 6, 2020 – Established in fall 2017, the Guest Lecture Series invites professionals into the classroom to be a guest lecturer and teach the class. Professionals are matched up with the classroom content that pertains to their field. This program gives students an inside look at different fields of study, bringing their classroom work to life.

This week, four guests entered the classrooms at La Salle Academy. Beginning on Monday, March 2nd, the Studio and Digital Art class welcomed Shanta Lawson, Education Director at the Studio Museum in Harlem. On Tuesday, Victoria Esser, a graduate from the Johnson & Wales University culinary program, presented a cooking demonstration for another senior art class. The learning continued after school in Civic Spirit Club on Tuesday when Susan Stetzer, District Manager of Community Board 3 provided information on the 2020 Census and how to make a real difference in the local community. The final guest lecture of the week was in Biology class with Dr. Jennifer Odien from The Office of Chief Medical Examiner who taught freshmen students about Forensic Anthropology and her important role in many police investigations.
