VERONA – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney met with local students in the classroom today by way of Skype.

Students at Vernon Verona Sherrill Middle School got to hear what it’s like to represent our region on a national level. Tenney was candid with the kids, who asked more than a dozen questions that ranged from tax cuts to the proposed wall along the Mexican border.

“Our goal is to make learning as authentic as possible, especially in history because history is in the past but in reality, they are active participants in their own government,” said social studies teacher Brad Myatt. “So for them to see that they have someone local that's from New Hartford that’s willing to answer questions and hopefully maybe drive them to aspire what she does.”

The students are learning about civics and the role of government in their lives. Tenney began this educational series last month.
