Just Say "Hi"

The one piece of advice I have for college-bound seniors is simple: just say "hi."

Even as a child, Anastasia Georgoulis had teaching in her bones. In grammar school, she felt a sense of responsibility towards her classmates, always ready to lend a helping hand with homework or a social problem.

“I was the kid to whom classmates went for help,” recalls Anastasia, who grew up in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

That attentive, protective spirit intensified during her studies at New York University, where she graduated in 2008 with a B.A. in history and later earned a M.A. at Teacher’s College.

 

It’s Time for Teenagers to Hold Adults Accountable

On Tuesday, November 5th, Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio and Republican candidate Joe Lhota will compete for the position of New York City mayor.  Most of our students do not meet the age requirement to vote for either candidate.  Too many students will use this restriction of their age to justify their indifference to the upcoming election.  Indifference, in this case, would be the wrong choice.
