I am in my 7th year of teaching high school in NYC public schools. I've taught grades 9 through 12, but I've been specializing in 10th grade for the past few years.
The most valuable thing I can teach my students is to question. It is my mission to place critical thinking at the center of our classroom, and for students to examine every subject and text we study with open, hungry minds.

Those who can, teach. Those who can't, make laws and policies about teaching. :)
