Posted February 07, 2019 12:30:24 A year ago, in March 2019, New York City public schools closed for the summer.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the closures in a press conference.
“New York City is facing a historic crisis.
I’ve said it from the beginning: we are in crisis,” de Blasio said at the time.
“Schools must close.
The children of New York deserve to be taught to be safe.
This is a city of opportunity and hope, and it is up to all of us to keep that promise.”
Schools have been closed since the city’s 2013-2016 school year.
After the press conference, the schools were back open, and de Blasio continued to push for closure, saying “every day we see more of the same.”
That’s when I decided to teach a class in Brooklyn.
It’s been an experience, and I’m happy to say it’s not my last.
What I learned From the start, I knew that I wanted to teach with students who were a little bit different from me, but also with the same passion and a desire to learn and grow.
The students I teach have had a very hard time in their first year of school.
The city’s schools have been so hard on them that many have experienced stress, fear, anxiety and depression.
I felt like I could help them through that.
The most difficult thing about teaching in Brooklyn is that there are so many other opportunities.
I love teaching.
But it is very difficult when you have to teach from home.
For me, Brooklyn was like a new experience, because there was so much more freedom.
I can’t tell you how much I miss it.
I got to teach the same classes that I used to.
The best thing about Brooklyn is, you get to be part of the community, too.
You’re not going to be surrounded by people you know.
I’m always surrounded by other teachers who I love and trust, and who want to learn.
I also really enjoyed teaching with my students in my classroom.
That’s one of the most rewarding things I can say.
I didn’t know how much time I would spend with them.
But I felt so lucky.
There was so many people in the room, and so many students, who helped me in so many ways.
That was one of my most rewarding moments of my life.
My students have been wonderful students.
They are so talented.
And they are learning and growing, which is a huge plus.
How much can I do to help them?
I love my job, but I’m going to have to start giving back to the community.
I need to share my teaching philosophy.
It was really a privilege to be able to work with so many talented teachers and learn from them.
They made it easier for me to make this decision.
I don’t know if I would have made it had I just wanted to leave the profession, or if I’d just had a career.
I learned so much.
I think my students can do so much with the lessons they learned.
What can I learn from Brooklyn?
I think that Brooklyn is such a great place to teach.
It is such an amazing place to be, and the city has a lot to offer.
I want to teach in the community that I grew up in, and be able, if I had the chance, to teach as many people as I can.
