As part of the first grade curriculum  and in honor of 2015 Police Week,  Mrs. Hoffman's First Grade Class had Zone Sergeant David Scott from the New ​York ​State Police, Troop F come in to teach them about safety and what his job entails as a community helper.

They learned about what State Troopers do in comparison to local police agencies, as well as the details of their uniforms.  They reviewed how to react in an emergency and the importance of calling 911.

Students asked many questions!
What do you do as a police officer?
Why are you a police officer?
What’s hard about your job?
What do you like about your job?
Why do you wear the bullet-proof vest?
Do you have a police dog?
and more...

His visit was a great opportunity for the students to further develop their Language for Information, Understanding and Social Interaction.  He also explained a bit of NYSGeography and the different Troop Zones throughout the counties.  

We give a great big thanks to those who stand guard to protect the people of the United States through law enforcement, especially Zone Sergeant David Scott!
