Gwen and I had the honor and pleasure of having Joe San Felippo and Tony Sinanis join us to discuss Amplifying Student Voice. We discussed not only the importance of developing student voice, but how to use that valuable information by putting it into action. Both guests share their own experiences where student voice has not only influenced but changed their schools and districts for the better.
Dr. Tony Sinanis is the principal of Cantiague Elementary School in Jericho, NY. Cantiague was named a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School and Tony received the 2014 New York State Elementary Principal of the Year Award and the national 2013 Bammy Award for Elementary School Principal of the Year. Joe Sanfelippo, PhD is the Superintendent of the Fall Creek School District. Prior to taking on his current role, he was an Elementary Principal in two rural school districts. #GoCrickets!
