So as I was walking the streets of Manhattan today, I walked into New York Governor Paterson and is entourage. He stopped and shook my hand as well as those of the other Teach for America people I was with. I have a picture that I'll upload later. I fell like it was my first run-in with a quasi-celebrity in New York.
moved to New York City in June 2008 to start summer institute for Teach for America. He attended the University of Florida, where he earned both his master's and bachelors' degrees. He teaches English, literacy, and writing to seventh and eighth graders, as well as advises the school newspaper, yearbook, and student council. His school is in Washington Heights, NY.
