2013 yielded some interesting outcomes in my teaching and writing career.
Late in 2013, I was announced as my building’s “Teacher of the Year” for 2014-2015. In response, I decided to write a series of books that details my best practices and my teaching philosophy. The first of that series is now available for purchase.
The Re-Creating Lifelong Learners book series reinforces authentic instruction by holding students accountable to assignments that are based in the real world and have long-term goals in mind.
Interviews and Book Talks
My Brand Interview by Susan Newman Design brought some excellent attention to my work. Susan is a Jersey City resident who specializes in media and marketing.
Locally, I have had several events in Jersey City. The public library, JC Made, and Farms in the Heights have all been wonderfully receptive to my work.

One of the most rewarding experiences of 2013 was my ability to raise enough money to purchase a dryer for Sylvia’s Place, a homeless LGBT youth shelter in Manhattan.
