The Opening Word Program would like to spotlight one of our teachers.

                        Sr. Bernadette Sassone

Sr. Bernadette Sassone has been a teacher with the Opening Word Program for 3 years. In 2016, Opening Word was awarded the Bank of America Neighborhood Builders Award which allowed us to open another classroom at our Huntington Station site. During the summer, Opening Word approached Sr Bernadette and the Daughters of Wisdom and asked them to operate the new room. She gladly accepted and is thrilled to be one of the staff. When asked what her favorite part about the Opening Word is she said, "Teaching. I just love teaching the women everyday." Opening Word is thrilled to have Sr. Bernadette on staff this year. 

A big Thank You to Sr. Bernadette, the Daughters of Wisdom, and all of our volunteer teachers.
