Setauket Elementary School fourth grade classes learned about the masters of poetry during a special visit from New York State Education Department Regent Roger Tilles. 

Visiting each of the classes individually, Mr. Tilles spoke about how he developed a love for poetry at a young age and enjoyed sharing poems with his children when they were growing up. Among the poems that he shared were some of the famous pieces written by Shel Silverstein, and he taught the students a special poem to share with their families.
