The creator of the “My Time Has Come” program, Madona Cole-Lacy, was responsible for the development and implementation of a program for us that serviced the Amityville School District for the 2009-2010 school year. Her ability to blend the elements of math, science and technology into an exciting program for elementary students was only superseded by her extreme care and concern for the welfare of students in general. Ms. Cole-Lacy provided this academic enrichment program with stimulating activities and sought out to showcase each students for his/her accomplishments.
She prepared her students for presentations and enabled them to gain confidence through knowledge demonstrated in several program events. Young students enthusiastically communicated with confidence and poise the nature of their exploration and culminating projects to adults and groups.
As a coordinator of this New York State project, I found Ms. Cole-Lacy to be an advocate for children and an eager player who assisted in reaching and often exceeding the necessary elements required by the program’s funding sources. It is hoped that we can join forces again to promote learning and foster social and cultural competencies.”
