For the selfless, strong and secure
secondary teacher of English (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 3, 2016
Teaching is what one makes of it. I worked hard for my students and taught remedial to regents, advanced placement, electives, sports journalism, copy editing, feature article, speech. Was a lead teacher, mentor, dean and assistant to the assistant principal of academic subjects. I was a repeated recipient of National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institutes and seminars ('99-'03). Traveled abroad to China (summer'98) with a 22 contingency of NYC teachers to explore chinese culture, history… Taught in Upward Bound Programs at Brooklyn College and Bronx Community College. There is no typical day in teaching and that is its uniqueness. Each day unfolds new experiences, challenges and situations that call for "on your feet, impromptu and practical and wise decision making that compliment students, administrators, parents, colleagues (parent coordinators,social workers, administrative assistants, guidance counselors, paraprofessionals, liaisons, school security, cafeteria and maintenance.
It is imperative to be organized, prepared and to improvise where necessary and to have fun doing it.
