Honoring Long-Time Educator Dr. Harriet Cuffaro

Last Friday, City and Country School hosted Dr. Harriet Cuffaro in celebration of a Festschrift recently published in her honor.
Dr. Cuffaro taught at C&C from 1954 to 1969 and has been working with C&C as a staff developer and advisor since 1998. She is a former professor at Bank Street College of Education, and the Festschrift was published as part of Bank Street's Occasional Papers Series, to commemorate her lifelong commitment to the field of education, to teachers, and to children. The Festschrift features contributions from several scholars and educators, including Director of Lower School Jane Clarke and Jonathan Silin, both of whom spoke on the publication and her contributions to the field. Dr. Cuffaro, when she was introduced, simply smiled warmly and said, "I'm speechless."
