About David

I believe that all students can learn and achieve and that while mistakes are part of learning, one should not be discouraged and give up; it is always all too easy to give up and just "get by" with the group and hope for a good grade. That is not the point of education; education it should be to develop the individual to recognize their own unique traits and abilities. Education is as much about understanding
who, what and where you are; a point of understanding from which one can proceed academically..

I am a recently retired with over twenty years of experience in the New York City schools and also taught as an adjunct instructor in my local community colleges. II read, write and speak Spanish, am computer literate and focus on reading (literacy) and writing skills.
