About

wp-1486922413920.jpgIn this blog, I’m telling the stories that my staff and I experience every day at the High School of Language and Innovation in the Bronx.

I started teaching English in the New York City Public School system in 2000.  In 2011, I became the founding principal of the High School of Language and Innovation, a new school that serves newcomer English Language Learners.  We had our first graduating class in June 2015.

Classroom 325 is a small classroom that used to be my office, where I originally thought of starting this blog.
