Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education
Roosevelt Union Free School District
The instructional program in the Roosevelt Union Free School District is a sequential K-12 continuum that works to provide every student with challenging, age-appropriate learning experiences. Through project based learning and problem based learning strategies; instruction at all levels will include thorough exposure in the subject matter and its historical development, as well as training in the related process and research skills.
This website will serve as an avenue for students, teachers, and families to access lesson plans, support resources, activities, games, and any other information that promotes fun and engaging activities centered around academic success.
I look forward to continued collaboration with students, teachers, families, administrators, community members and organizations as we impart knowledge and develop as fully as possible the total capabilities of each and every pupil and to prepare him/her for a contributing part in American society and the world. Please feel free to contact me at (516) 345-7006 or via email at VBailey@rufsd.org with questions or concerns regarding the secondary educational experience.
Roosesvelt Union Free School District will prepare and inspire all of its students to seize the opportunities of the global society through innovation, inquiry, collaboration, and creative problem solving.
I believe the children are our future...
I believe each and every child at Roosevelt Union Free School District has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. By believing in them as capable individuals we will help children to develop their potential. We will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas. I have a vision of a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so amazingly awesome.
Teach them well and let them lead the way...
Roosevelt Union Free School District is a very diverse community that has a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. Our role is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own wealth of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, we will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful.
Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride...
In showing children how to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning, Roosevelt Union Free School District will give them the tools to become successful in life, to believe in themselves, and to have pride in themselves.
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be...
Teaching is a lifelong learning process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies, learning from the parents and community, learning from colleagues, and especially learning from the children. Children teach us to open our minds and hearts to the joys, the innocence, and the diversity of ideas in the world. They teach us that boundaries can be crossed, doors opened and ideas are boundless. Because of this, I will never forget how to smile with the new, cherish the old, and grow with the children.
