Topic: Highs and Lows of Building a NYC Schools STEM /STEAM Pipeline
Guest: Scott Krivitsky
“I have been an educator for 12 years and recently was awarded Teacher of the Year by the Daily News and Department of Education. Also, I was spotlighted in the National Educational Alliance Magazine for creating a STEM Pipeline that bridges elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges, and workforce development organizations. This model for education has never been done in New York City before. I would love to be on your team to help Empower our Teachers and Schools. We need to bring back Creativity and Spontaneity to our Classrooms. ” What issues do you feel are most critical for our union? “The biggest issue is that our teachers have lost a Voice in Education. Once again, we need to create a safe teaching environment, where teachers bring fun back into the classroom without fear of being micromanaged by administration. Educators are the pulse of our schools and deserve the respect of being a Teaching Professional. As educators, we need to bring back Pride into Teaching. I will help Impact Education for the Better for our Teachers.”

Radio Guest, Claudia Toback, Field Supervisor for Hunter College and Retired NYC Teacher
Topic: The Role of Project-Based Learning in STEM Education
Radio Guest: Claudia Toback began her teaching career more than 50 years ago in New York City’s public schools. She considered herself a six-week wonder, as a “graduate” of the Intensive Teaching Training Program. With science and math teacher shortages looming, NYC offered recent college graduates the opportunity to teach. She took the challenge and began teaching 9th-grade science to inattentive students. That changed when she buckled down to make science more exciting. Claudia developed special class projects that integrated science, math and engineering, which she claims is the precursor to STEM. Although retired from the classroom, Claudia is actively engaged in working with a new generation of science teachers in her position as a field supervisor for Hunter College.

Rose Gordon has been facilitating Restorative Justice for youth for over a decade. Less than 5% of the hundreds of youth she’s worked with committed other acts of delinquency. Rose has facilitated Restorative Approaches trainings in New Mexico and Thailand. She views Restorative Approaches as a way of building peaceful communities and an “inoculation” against violence.

TOPIC: “The Five Major Fears that the Enemy Uses to Expose and Destroy Man? Part 5
The Men of Semper Fidelis specializes in the healing of traumatic events in the lives of men an and youth. MSF distinguishes the relationship a man has with each other, that is like no other. It goes beyond just being men, it’s a brotherhood and last for a life time. These relationships are dedicated to bringing men and youth from all racial backgrounds together and helping them establish true male relationships. Not just pertaining to sports and casual conversations but building a brotherhood. We accomplish this by communicating with each other on how we really feel on the inside and not hiding behind our masks, but be willing to share our secrets and being accountable to each other. Our goal is not only to build friendships and establish a brotherhood between men & youth, but to be an intricate part of making a difference in the community in which we live. Before our community can change, men not women must change physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is what MSF is all about, changing men/youth lives by building healthy relationships with one another to make an impact in our community by leading, protecting and providing for our families!
