NYSUT at Terryville’s Career Day

On Friday morning, October 26th, NYSUT Labor Relations Specialist Laura Graves presented to approximately 100 fifth grade students at Terryville Elementary School.  Ms. Graves’ presentation was part of the school’s Career Day activities, a day where guest speakers present to students on what their career entails.  The focus of Ms. Graves’ presentation was on:

  • What are labor unions
  • The history of labor unions in the United States
  • Important labor leaders in our country’s history
  • What her role within our state and local union is
She used a Youtube video of the story Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type to help illustrate to the ten and eleven year old students how unions can be beneficial for workers.

Ms. Graves is the LRS for the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association .
