On Wednesday of this week, ESL teacher Ellen Spratlin took her class on a field trip to the Mary Cheney Library to learn about the library, for themselves and their children. The students -- who hailed from Peru, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Bangladesh, Georgia and Ghana -- then went to a coffee cafe to further practice their English. We are proud of these 'real world' experiences that our learners enjoy, and hope that our department can serve others in our community in creative and effective ways.

Saving The Best For Last ...
Matthew McKenna grew up in Manchester and graduated from MHS in the class of 2005. He went straight into the military and spent six years in the Coast Guard and Air Force. He worked for MACE as security and as a substitute at MHS briefly before taking a job as a State of CT Department of Corrections Officer. “In January when Big Mitch passed I contacted Dr. Kearney by phone and asked If there was any way I could help out. I wanted to keep Big Mitch’s spirit alive.” Within a few days he began working security with Adult Education again. He was offered a full time position and resigned from the DOC. Here he can try and mold students, as well as be a role model. “Big Mitch can never be replaced but I try my best everyday to be the man he was. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to work here at MHS and Adult Education.”
