Junior-Senior High School students enrolled in the Nassau BOCES Joseph M. Barry Career & Technical Education Center and Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts showcased their work in a variety of subjects to Director of Guidance Janna Bonacorsi. These areas included animation media and digital media design, animal care, audio production, aviation operations, barbering, video production, computer game design, child care, computer technology, construction electricity, culinary, fashion design, network cabling/home technology integration, scenic design, sonic arts, veterinary science, video production and welding.
Mrs. Bonacorsi experienced firsthand student success in these programs. She learned how to play the erhu in programming and producing drumbeats, was graded on a student-led sewing assignment, tracked a student’s flight status out of Farmingdale and over Port Jefferson, enjoyed delicious Pop-Tarts made from leftover pie crust, viewed student artwork and more. She was able to observe students in their classes, connect with their teachers and counselors and learn about additional Barry Tech and Long Island High School for the Arts opportunities.
