Assemblywoman Amy Paulin visited Westchester Day School and spoke to the seventh grade students. The seventh graders studied New York State government with Miss Roode as part of their New York State unit, which helped them understand how a bill becomes a law on the state level and Paulin’s role in the state government. Paulin discussed the many bills that she proposed and helped pass as well as various other topics such as the governor’s role in the law-making process, challenges faced, the roles of Assembly members and legislative sessions. The seventh graders applied their knowledge to ask Paulin very thoughtful questions. Their questions not only illustrated their interest but, their critical thinking skills and understanding of NYS government. They were extremely engaged and were grateful that Paulin could speak to them and answer all of their questions. Thank you to Mrs. Gewanter for making this opportunity possible.
