Dubbed “The Hip Hop Principal” by parents and students, he has taken the powerful and magnetic force known as Hip Hop and channeled it into a tool that gets young urban students excited about education while at the same time building their self-esteem and confidence. This Project also
benefitted the students by creating a project-based model for teaching valuable skills and lessons that extended from the classroom into practical application. The result of this was not only a student-created music video that screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, also students learned to use their passion to focus on education, self-respect, and self-determination, They were honored by Southeast Queens, New York City, and nationally for their hard work and accomplishment. The success of the project was unparalleled, and combined with other unique teaching methods, projects, and programs, a formerly at-risk school experienced skyrocketing test scores, decreased violence, and students began to realize their own abilities. Through
interactive dialogue with his audience, and guests, the mission is to educate ALL AT- RISK communities.
