This week’s writer is Annette Carter, grades 4-6 teacher at Beeman Elementary School in New Haven.
Hosting the naturalization ceremony at Beeman is always a great honor. It is a place where real life intersects with classroom learning. It is a place where we experience what it means when we say we are Americans, and a time where we take great pride in celebrating this amazing country. Our students learn about the path to citizenship, and the stories behind people who come to this country and dream for it to become their home.
