I have been teaching since the month after I graduated college in 2004. I worked for six years in the New York City public school system. Here is the Mock Trial club I coached my second year of teaching. The students were great, and we had so many authentic conversations.
I’ve always been actively involved outside the classroom. Currently, I run the Reach Out service club at AES. Every week, we invite our neighbors from an impoverished informal housing settlement to our campus for activities. Watch this Reach Out promo I created to get a sense of the meaningful fun we have.
