‘First in state’ in snow is not a coveted designation By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

A week after leading Connecticut in accumulation during Jan. 12’s snow storm, North Haven continues to dig out, hampered by further precipitation. “We’re doing the best we can,” said Public Works director Lynn Sadosky on Jan. 18. “That 30 inches we got last week was on top of two feet already there. And we’ve had freezing rain since.” “We’ve been plowing roads, widening them here and there where we can,” she added. “We’ve been clearing catch basins, and putting down ClearLane treated salt,

which has a five-hour melt off. We’ve been applying that to keep roads from freezing.” Battling Jan. 12’s aftermath comes with financial consequences – North Haven is chipping significantly into the 2010 snow removal budget. “We’re approaching the end of that budget,” said finance director Ed Swinkowski on Jan. 18. “We’re approaching 85 to 90 percent of it.” “If we have another bad storm on Friday, we will definitely be over it by next week,” he added. “But we have contingency money available, or we can move around money in other accounts.”

Outside North Haven’s recreational center, a skid loader moves snow leftover from Jan. 12’s storm. Meanwhile, enormous snow banks still border town roads, impairing drivers’ views. “We’ve been moving snow from intersection sightlines,” Sadosky said. “That’s been the hardest part we’ve been dealing with right now, and the freezing rain is not helping us.” Responding to a storm of such size presented challenges for municipal workers. “It’s been tough,” Sadosky said. “Normally, 12

inches takes 24 hours to clear. It has taken us a good couple of days to get the 30 inches done.” “The public works guys have been doing a great job,” she added. “For the 30-inch storm, we had over 350 inquiries. We’ve been helping people, clearing sight-lines, widening roads, plowing again and again, helping residents reach mailboxes. A lot of residents are handicapped or elderly and needed extra assistance.” Since Jan. 12, municipal plow trucks have crisscrossed town at all hours to clear streets. In its fleet, North Haven boasts 13 “large” plow trucks, according to Sadosky, vehicles with six or eight wheels. Moreover, public works owns four light trucks “a little bit bigger than a pickup,” and contracts with a private company for additional automobiles. North Haven also has access to front loaders and skid loaders. Combating Connecticut’s extreme winter conditions since Jan. 12 necessitated that local officials utilize all available resources. “I celebrated my two-year anniversary last Wednesday, and that was the worst storm I’ve seen here

yet,” Sadosky said. Director of Field Operations Victor Palma has several decades of civic service on Sadosky, but agreed. “I’m working on my 25th year here,” he said. “As everybody knows, we haven’t had a snow storm of such magnitude in a long time.” “That was the most snow we have ever had,” he added. “Next, I think, was when we had a 14-inch snow storm in 1994 or 1995.” Jan. 12 brought obstacles all around town. “People weren’t prepared for it,” Palma said. “Our roads where cleared in a very timely matter, but we were caught between a rock and a hard place. We had to choose between plowing to the curb or having residents angry that snow was being pushed into their driveways.” “We’re just trying to keep residents happy and do the job effectively,” he added. Whether locals were cheerful about it or not, North Haven topped Connecticut for total snowfall on Jan. 12. “I was informed by the Department of Emergency Services that we led the state with 30.5 inches,” said First Selectman Michael

New consignment shop mixes business with charity By Paul Colella The North Haven Citizen

Lifelong-resident Kristine Cebula and her boyfriend Marcus Pires recently opened a new business in town which offers affordable family items while assisting charitable causes. Called “Find It Here Consignments,” the couple’s shop is at 117 Washington Avenue in the North Haven

Shopping Center. Both Cebula and Pires are part of the business community, while interacting with the public, offering reasonably-priced shopping, assisting consigners in reselling their unwanted possessions and giving something to those in need. “I felt that North Haven needed a consignment shop, especially during these difficult economic times when people are struggling,” stated Cebula. “Being a mother with three children, I know that it is sometimes hard making ends meet.” “I opened my consignment shop this past November and I chose the North Haven Shopping Center because it is safe, convenient, and has a good location with lots of traffic,” she added. Cebula further explained that she and Pires decided to work together by combining

ting. There are dressing rooms located in the rear of the store. Cebula described the consignment process as following: when a person comes into the shop with items, an account is set up with a number assigned to each consigner. Items are carefully inspected for state of condition. Accepted merchandise is priced with computer software so prices remain fair. Next, items are tagged and placed on the floor. Once stuff sells, the consigner receives 40 percent from the sale. All consigners sign a contract and must show proof of the document and account number when claiming their money or when they are reclaiming items that did not sell. Unsold items go to those in need. “After 90 days, if an item has not sold, I call the consigner and ask if he or she wishes to pick up the item or it will be donated to charity,” Cebula said. “We discard nothing. Marcus and I have learned that the items we have already donated to local charities have been very much appreciated by the recipients.” “Last week, Marcus brought a box of books to the jail in New Haven and the police officers told him that they would be put to good use,” she added. “Also, we have donated furniture and clothing to the women’s shelter in Wallingford and to The Raymond Hill School in New

Britain, a facility where the children live and go to school.” Cebula and Pires’ business is a multi-facet operation

their business and people skills, creativity, team effort and desire to help others. Both individuals are lifelong residents with deep North Haven roots. “I was born and raised in North Haven and attended the North Haven School System,” explained Pires. “Since the store opened back in November, Kristine and I enjoy interacting with the public, meeting new people and reacquainting ourselves with familiar faces, being a part of the town’s business community, and giving back to the community as well.” Cebula is in charge of daily financial transactions, paying bills, sorting and pricing consignment merchandise, while Pires is busy working on designs, lay-out work and the decorating of the shop. They find that two heads are better than one — teamwork has been beneficial for the business’ growth. The store’s setup consists of racks, shelves and display cases neatly and meticulously displaying various items including men, women and children’s clothing and shoes, furniture, household items, cookware, glassware, baby items, bedding accessories, holiday ornaments and decorations, seasonal items, pictures, books, lamps, blankets, quilts, rugs, wreaths, jewelry and more.

Headstone missing for 40 years will return to North Haven

Photo by Howard Eckels

By Howard Eckels Special to the North Haven Citizen

Last week, officials solved a North Haven mystery when they located a longmissing, two-centuries-old tombstone. Clinton’s Sgt. Jeremiah Dunn recently reported that the town’s Police Department found a 215-year-old gravestone while cleaning out the old Clinton police building. Through an Internet search, Clinton officers learned that a North Haven family was a likely source for the tombstone. In 1888, North Haven’s Town Historian Sheldon Thorpe recorded an inventory of all the graves in the Old Center Cemetery on Town Green. In this inventory was the grave of Mrs. Ruth Sackitt, who died on March 27th, 1796. Born in 1755, she was the third wife of Mr. Solomon Sackitt. It is unknown when Sackitt’s headstone went missing but it was recorded as such by Gloria Furnival in her book “On-The-Green,” published in 1995. The consensus of opinion at the Clinton Police Department is the headstone was entered into their evidence system in the 1970’s. However, the rea-

The North Haven Historical Society Archivist Gloria Furnival documents the authenticity of Mrs. Ruth Sackitt’s headstone. The headstone was returned Monday to North Haven from Clinton and has been missing from the Ancient Cemetery on the Green for 40 years. Ruth Sackitt (1755 - 1796) was the third of Solomon Sackitt’s four wives. Gloria Furnival is the author of “On The Green: The Old Center Cemetery,” which documents the cemetery history.

son why has been lost to history. North Haven Police Chief James X. DiCarlo assigned to the case Office Ted Stockman, who enlisted the aid of North Haven’s Historical Society. It was determined that the gravestone definitely belonged in the North Haven Center Cemetery on the North Haven Green. It is one of approximately 25 grave stones that have been reported missing over the years. In Clinton the headstone was discovered underneath debris by Public Works employee Jeff Heser, while the clean out was underway for building remodeling. Ten

years ago, Clinton Police moved to a new site. Now the mystery begins. The headstone is a typical, ornate marker from Colonial times. It includes the verse “Death is a debt to nature due, that I have paid and so

must you.” Many Colonial headstones display verses the author felt appropriate. Complicating the mystery was the gravestone’s spelling of “Sackitt,” a surname known locally today as “Sackett.” However, it is relatively common for spellings of family names to evolve and change over time — Ellis Island’s affect comes to mind. It is more probable that legal documents drawn up by

town clerks contained misspellings, and the alterations were adopted by the subject of the document. A probable exception to this was the masons who carved the stones. The North Haven Historical society has a collection of stones that were never finished because they contained errors. Many of the masons who worked in North Haven did so for peri-

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital receives funds from Rotary Club By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen

Meeting with a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital fundraising representative proved educational for North Haven’s Rotary Club. According to its website, Memphis’ St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the first and only “National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center” devoted solely to re-

search and care of children with catastrophic diseases. In a section entitled “Danny’s Promise,” the site offers an explanation of what initiated a famous actor, Danny Thomas of Make Room for Daddy, to devote a large part of his life to the facility’s development and success. The site reads, “More than 70 years ago, Danny Thomas, then a struggling young entertainer with a baby on the way, visited a Detroit church and was so moved during the

Mass, he placed his last $7 in the collection box. When he realized what he’d done, Danny Thomas prayed for a way to pay the looming hospital bills. The next day, he was offered a small (acting) part that would pay 10 times the amount he’d given to the church. Danny Thomas had experienced the power of prayer.” Such events started a devotion to prayer in Thomas’s life, resulting in one of the twentieth century’s greatest legacies. Last Tuesday morning, the President of New Haven County’s Chapter of the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Arthur Natalino, addressed North Haven’s Rotary Club at Washington Avenue’s Breakfast Nook Restaurant. Natalino said his father was the first local manager of an annual St. Jude fundraiser drive which was usually held in parochial

sion that cost a one billion dollars. Thomas coined the phrase, “No child should die in the dawn of life.” Thomas had built the facility in order to fulfill a promise that he had made in a personal prayer to St Jude, the “patron saint of hopeless causes,” when seeking guidance with his personal career as a young man. In the early 1950’s, he began his plan to build the hospital, and with the formation of ALSAC, the St. Jude Hospital foundation formed by his joint venture with 100 fellow Arabian speaking Americans in Chicago in 1957, the facility soon became a reality. Natalino explained that when his dad got involved with St. Jude fundraising 49 years ago, there were 1200 chapters throughout America. Today, New Haven’s chapter is one of only six that remain. However, what was once considered a death sentence with diagnose of childhood cancer has gone from 80 percent fatal when the hospital opened its doors, to 80 per-

Fasano takes oath of office

State Senator Len Fasano (R-North Haven) was sworn into his fifth term in the Connecticut State Senate on Jan. 5, vowing to make balancing the budget his top priority. Sen. Fasano represents the 34th Senatorial District communities of East Haven, North Haven and Wallingford and serves as Minority Leader Pro Tempore, the second highest ranking Republican in the Senate. This year, Senator Fasano will continue to serve as Ranking Member on the General Assembly’s Planning and Development, Veterans Affairs, and Executive Nominations committees. Senator Fasano was born in New Haven on May 15, 1958, the son of Dr. And Mrs. Leonard Fasano, and has remained a resident of the Southern Connecticut area ever since. He attended Yale University. He earned his bachelor of science degree in 1981, and played running back for the football team under legendary coach, Carmen Cozza. Senator Fasano went on to earn a Juris Doctorate from Quinnipiac Law School in 1984 and graduated from Boston University Law School a year later with an L.L.M. degree in taxation. Senator Fasano resides in North Haven with his wife, Jill, and their children, Kristen, Robert and Karla.

Natalino. The Nataliano family accepted and supported the effort completely, so when his father died years ago, Art Nataliano enthusiastically inherited responsibility for managing the local chapter, and has raised over $800,000 in 15 years. Despite a busy career in automobile sales, Natalino keeps needs of critically ill children close to his heart. Having met several young patients years ago when he decided to take on “his father’s dream,” he readily admits that his personal emotions are much too strong to permit him to visit the hospital in Memphis anymore. He described the “amazing children” as “suffering, but very grateful” for

support they receive. For the most part, Nataliano’s seemingly endless task involves solicitation from many of the same major donors year after year, but he did say that a recent ziti dinner raised $17,000. He also mentioned that the organization is “a major user of canisters.” One event that the speaker said he looks forward to is the upcoming, 50th anniversary dinner next year, at which Marlo Thomas may make an appearance, since she resides in nearby Westport, Connecticut. At the interesting presentation’s close, North Haven Rotarian Mark Lesage and President-Elect Guy Casella presented a check from the club for $750.

cent chance of recovery today. While employing 3,400 at the hospital, one mind-boggling statistic revealed is that it costs $1,700,000 per day to keep the approximately 450bed medical facility functioning, yet no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. In fact, Natalino said, “No one is refused, and there is no cost,” in the event that families are uninsured. Unfortunately, due to today’s tough economic times, the hospitals oncesuccessful national radiothon, which had brought in $1.3 million, took in only $450,000 recently, according to

new years. For some moms and dads it could be to eat healthier, loose weight, be more money conscious, become more involved with children or help out those less fortunate. Parents are tough on themselves when it comes to seeking self-improvement, both personally and for their family. As if there is not enough pressure and guilt to deal with, the hope of a new year can pile it on even more. The beginning of a new year is perfect time to reevaluate or set new goals. No matter what happened in previous years, you can be happy and raise happy, confident and responsible children starting this year. Individual resolutions are easy to give up on, since they involve yourself while you are

primarily focused on your family. Creating a yearly list only potentially sets you up to not stay on track with goals. A more realistic idea is to make the list but have obtainable goals and expectations. Take the pressure off yourself — compose your New Year resolutions as a family. Writing the list is the easy part — adhering to it is another story. Make it fun and get your kids involved by asking them what things they would like to change or do in the New Year.

Remember When: telephone operators By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

When Alexander Graham Bell invented telephones in Boston during 1876, the devices became the most valuable means of communication and the most common method of talking to people over a distance. Upon telephone’s conception, companies hired teenage boys as operators because of their success in working in telegraph offices. However, such boys could be rambunctious and pulled pranks on callers. In 1878, the Boston Telephone Dispatch Company began hiring women operators, and by 1900 almost all operators were female. During the 1930s, work was hard to find because of The Great Depression, but one woman was fortunate to get a job as a telephone operator working at the telephone exchange in Hamburg, New York. For Patricia Comer, being a telephone operator was tedious and monotonous, but it earned her a paycheck. Through the decades, she has witnessed many improvements and developments in telephones. Although she is now retired from her former profession, Comer can

still remember days at the telephone exchange and the switchboard’s buzzing sounds. This is her story. “Back in the 1930s, the only jobs open to women was servant, factory worker, sales clerk, nurse or teacher, so despite the low wages [about $7 a week], women including myself flocked to the hiring office at the telephone exchange. To qualify, an operator had to be unmarried, aged 17 to 26, and have arms long enough to reach the phone lines,” recalled Comer. “My job was to plug a caller’s phone line into the line of the person being called. I’m glad that I inherited my long arms from my father’s side of the family.” Comer added that she sat on a chair which swiveled and every time a line buzzed, she would connect the call manually through a switchboard. Even though the caller could not see the operator’s face, all employees had to be dressed in appropriate attire with hair parted up and tied with a ribbon or beret. “We sat in a row with one person after another with just a little elbow room between each of us. Talking to the person next to us See Remember, page 22

For all things, a season By Kyle Swartz Akin to long, littoral dunes, spacious snowdrifts have lined our roads. Packed dense and grown tall, these white hedgerows hamper sightlines around corners and across intersections. Driving can be difficult even after plow vehicles have scraped and scoured streets so that few hints remain of flakes’ accumulation. Where tumultuous trucks bulldozed precipitation piles now stand iced-over waves refusing breakage — crescendos temporally solidified in time and place. Snow storms leave behind transcendent markers. Indented footsteps exemplify that winter abides like no other. Yes, spring offers flowers, summer bugbites, leaves to fall. But competing seasons lack matchups for Jack Frost’s roster of indications –

acute icicles, perceivable breaths, songbirds’ absence. When winter arrives at last it stubbornly stays. Cold certainty defines the period, an undeniable knowledge of routines which must be fulfilled daily. Tightly we tug boot strings before heading out to chip rime off car windshields. Traversing slicked gravel, bodies tense from low temperatures or in expectation of snowball ambush. Similar suspense guides us yearly through calendar pages. Awaiting gift-giving holidays lends definition – or is it condonation? – to December chilliness. With 2010 such celebrations have passed, and many turn toward a different, upcoming jubilation. Of course, I mean Super Bowl Sunday. (Actually, Patriots and Giants fans may be pining for next winter.) Any sensible

supermarket already displays mounds of chips, dips and soda. Filling shop aisles, too, are confections packed within Valentine’s Day boxes. I take to heart this precursor of future days, where warmth is more imminent. However, not until I see rabbits and eggs of chocolate will I truly anticipate toastier times. In the interim, be blithe and go sledding. Skate atop hardened ponds. Foretaste spring and play creator — from insensate slush, cultivate snowmen. Or stay indoors with hot chocolate and laptops, where social networks still crackle with life — vivacious forces seemingly removed from winter’s ambit. Activity outside may have slowed to a state of blissful reverie, weighted down beneath snowy sheets and hillocks. See Season, page 22

more time with our children outdoors, playing a game or reading with them. Turn off cell phones and try not to think about work, money and laundry. Just be in the moment with your kids as, these moments are gone quickly. Dinner is usually a tricky subject when it comes to youngsters. Try to have more sit-down dinners together as a family. Cooking a healthy meal for the entire family will benefit everyone. Involve the kids, for if they help make food they may be more inclined to eat it. Exercise is vital to everyone’s health. Get kids outside, even with all the snow. Have boys and girls help shovel or build a snowman. Reading to your children is critical to their development and showing them a love for books will stick with them. If your children are old enough, encourage them to help with household chores. If they are involved in an activity and can see the positive, end result, they will learn valuable lessons. For example, have kids help clear the dinner table, stack dirty dishes in the dishwasher and put their own coats and shoes away. Doing such chores will instill self-sufficiency in kids, and will help them be more responsible for personal things. Another easy task is

for youths to pick up their toys when playtime is over, making sure they brush their teeth, wash their hands after every bathroom trip and before eating and being nicer to siblings and friends. Be kind to others. Kids learn by example so set tones in your family. Volunteer your time to local causes or donate clothes, toys, etc. that your family no longer uses. Go green. Involving children in environment issues is the best way to teach them how to protect our planet. Other resolutions can help you grow as a parent: Make a budget, even if you stray from it. You have to start somewhere, sometime, so why not make it this year? Have more date nights. Make sure to discuss topics other than kids and money! A happy mom and dad make for happy kids. Life will not come to a crashing halt if you do not keep resolutions you set for yourself or your family. Parenting is hard. Each new day is an opportunity to do better, not only with yourself, but also with your children. Being patient with loved ones can be challenging, but worth every deep breath. Do not sweat small stuff ! Everything kids do wrong can seem like a big deal, but in the long run, they are just kids. The best advice for a new year and every year is to love your kids, plain and simple.

The past week’s winter storm has forced the cancellation of hundreds of American Red Cross blood drives along the eastern seaboard, causing a shortfall of more than 8,000 blood donations in the southeast and northeast corners of the country. “The American Red Cross is asking eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood to help make up the significant shortfall caused by the recent storm that gripped the eastern seaboard,” said Donna M. Morrissey, Director of Communications, American Red Cross Blood Services – Northeast Division. “The American Red Cross is rescheduling blood drives that were cancelled and asking donors to come in to give blood and platelets in the upcoming days to help increase blood inventory levels as soon as it is safe to do so,” Morrissey added. There is a particular need for people with O-negative blood to give now. O-negative is the universal blood type which can go to any patient regardless of their blood type. O-negative blood is often used in emergency cases when doctors can’t wait to type a patient’s blood. All blood types are needed. The only source of blood is a generous, volunteer blood donor. To celebrate National Blood Donor Month and help increase awareness about the need for blood, Dunkin’ Donuts and the American Red Cross are teaming up for the fourth annual “Give a Pint, Get a Pound” campaign, which provides a coupon for a free pound of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee to all presenting donors at Red Cross blood drives in Connecticut during the month of January. To schedule an appointment or to sponsor a blood drive, please call 1-800RED-CROSS or visit today. Individuals who are at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. Please bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate.


If you are in generally good health, are 17 or older and weigh 110 pounds or more, you may call (800) 4483543 to make an appointment for any Red Cross blood drive in Connecticut.

pact. The latest issue of Alphabet Soup, an internationally-circulated children’s magazine printed in Australia, published “Spiral Poem” by Janhavi Narain, one of Westerberg’s student writers. “It was a shock,” Westerberg said. “Alphabet Soup is a very popular magazine.” Narain’s poem, included in this issue, is also artisti-

pressed interest in mentoring students,” Peters-Durrigan said. “I was very excited. It’s a dream come true.” “It’s very exciting to watch Westerberg’s work because we have children who are very interested in writing. Teachers don’t have lots of time to guide children who really like writing toward publication,” Peters-Durrigan added. “Some children don’t even know what skills and creativity they have because the opportunity doesn’t normally exist for mentoring.” With the new school year in 2010 Westerberg began an advanced writers’ club for interested third, fourth and fifth graders. “This is for children thinking about writing as a career, children who are not writing only because of assignments, but because they live to write.” she said. Fourteen kids made commitments and have been submitting work based on deadlines set by Westerberg. “These children come to me

and I offer help with editing,” she said. “They can write whatever they wish.” Her help is meant to build off classroom fundamentals. “Work done in the classrooms is the bedrock, the foundation for children learning to enjoy writing,” she said. “The teachers and I collaborate so these children could be prepared to pursue the careers they want.” Already, her group has generated professional im-

comfort remembering the days when I played a role in connecting one caller to another.” Life will fade, people will come and go, good times will not last forever and hard times will try our spirits, but memories remain. For Patricia Comer, memories of working as a telephone operator during the 1930s and 40s remind her of a time when she provided personal service with her arms, hands and voice, while earning a living. It is that experience that remains special and significant to Patricia many years later despite the great transformation in the telephone industry. Let your heart, as well as your mind, cherish the memories of yesterday, for they teach lessons and educate us about the past while bringing comfort and hope for today and tomorrow, so while we can, we should remember when.

Comer saw many changes with the telephone and the operator’s job. “Since my days as an operator, a telephone went from a rich person’s luxury to every family’s necessity,” she said. “Long distance service was established and transmission quality improved. Telephones had a dramatic physical change from the wall phone to the dial telephone, the desk telephone, the ‘300’ model, the colored or decorative phone, the trim-line phone, a touch-a-matic phone, a push button phone, to cell phones.” “Almost all calls are switched automatically and, many times, if a person calls information, he or she will speak to a machine or a recorded voice,” she added. “The human voice and personal service have been replaced by modern technology. Oh, how I miss hearing a human voice but I do find

cally creative, a vortex of words. “When she first gave it to me it was hand-written on a piece of paper,” Westerberg said with a laugh. “I said to her, ‘We have to make a better copy.’” Official publication was a surprise up to the moment of realization. “When you submit to them, you never hear back from them,” Westerberg said. “I found out on a halfday. I had my class doing 15 minutes of silent reading. As they read, I read the new Alphabet Soup.” “I was sitting there reading, and thinking to myself, ‘I don’t see any Americans in here,’” she continued. “Then I turned the page and saw it. I almost flew through the roof. It said her name plus ‘Connecticut.’ She actually found out the night before.” Narain was America’s sole contributor to the edition. Encouraging her advanced group to submit for Alphabet Soup is one of Westerberg’s strategies to foster growth in self-confidence and capabili-

schools and Ridge Road’s mission statements stress curriculum that presents learning as a lifelong process and considers youths’ future employment while pushing boys and girls to accomplish personal goals. Keeping in mind the academic criterion, Westerberg crafts her lessons. “There’s an evolution here with the work we do at Ridge Road,” she said. “The children are learning in the library about real life skills. There’s a career component always built in.” “I want the kids to be able to see the big picture,” she concluded.

ties. “I tell the children that there is nothing other children have done that they cannot do themselves. It’s not that being published is unachievable,” Westerberg said. “This lets them know that their writing is not inferior to writing in the magazine.” In the world of professional writing, perseverance is crucial. “Even if their submissions are not accepted this time around, I tell them to keep trying,” Westerberg said. “J.K. Rowling and Dr. Seuss were rejected time and

time again before getting published.” Westerberg’s class exercises expand upon such ideas. “I wrote a play that the kids act out in which they submit manuscripts to different publisher’s offices,” she said. “This helps children understand that this is a process, this is what it’s like in the real world.” In Westerberg’s exercises, kids also act out scenes in which they learn proper Facebook use, how to protect online passwords and handle cyber-bullying. “Once it’s in their head, they own it,” she said. “I tell the kids that they will hear me in their head.” Both North Haven’s public
