Featured: Literature Teacher Nicholas Cannariato in NYT

Our own Mr. Nicholas Cannariato, Literature and Language Arts teacher and amateur birder, had a piece published in The New York Times Magazine on April 22, 2020: How Bird-Watching Prepared Me for Sheltering in Place.

An excerpt:

"Chimney Rock, on the eastern spur of the Point Reyes headlands in California, is well known for the elephant seals that congregate there. One afternoon, while walking down the path overlooking them, I saw a woman looking through a spotting scope on a tripod, directed out toward the water. It turned out she was watching seabirds. She told me she started bird-watching as she got older because she was analytically minded, loved numbers and words, but struggled with visual memory and acuity and wanted to strengthen those faculties. Having similar proclivities, I listened closely. Eventually, she asked me if I wanted to look."

Congratulations Mr. C!
