The story goes that a former research manager for a news agency, as well as an off-and-on freelance writer, decided to go off the deep end and become a teacher.
That moron was me, Mr. D.
I graduated from Georgetown University in 1999 and have a Masters degree in Education from Mercy College. I am a New York City Teaching Fellow, and after teaching social studies at a school in the south Bronx for eight years, I now teach English Language Arts and social studies in a school in the east Bronx. I am also a Teacher-Historian with the Teaching American History project, a federal grant designed to expand American history education in US schools. Finally, not to sound too pompous, but I am now also an Adjunct Lecturer at Lehman College in the City University of New York.
Commentary was something I was good at, but not dealing with editors. That’s why I started this: to provide an unfiltered view of history–and the teaching of history–through my gin-sodden eyes. It won’t be pretty–heck, it may not even be spelled right. Yet I can guarantee that the blog is honest. Any comments or suggestions are more than welcome.
