Where did you grow up?
Right here in NY, Manhattan.
What inspired you to become a teacher?
I had a lot of good teachers who I admired as a student. I like talking about history, I like working with kids, I like working with other people. It’s a pretty good line of work to be in.
Where did you go to college? Major?
I went to Bowdoin College. I majored in history and concentrated in European History.
Where and what did you teach before you came to BSGE?
Well right before I came to BSGE I was in graduate school at Teacher’s College in Columbia. Before that I actually taught everything in an elementary school for a couple of years.
I think it’s a fun subject to teach because there are always points of connection
