CENTEREACH, NEW YORK (JANUARY 2021)—A distinguished teacher from the Middle Country Central School District (MCCSD) has shown that a little change makes a big difference. Selden Middle School (SMS) teacher, Ms. Marrero, organized the district’s Shop with a Cop, a program that rewards children with the opportunity to purchase clothing and other necessities while shopping with a police officer. Several students from the district’s elementary, middle and high schools were paired with a volunteer to shop the aisles of Walmart for 60-minutes.
