Truman Students Visit The MasterCard Tech Hub

Monday, March 12, 2018:
Eight senior class students from Harry S Truman High School visited with the staff of MasterCard, Inc’s Tech Hub location in the Silicon Alley section of Manhattan.  Attendees were given a hands-on tour of MasterCard’s technological innovations in retail and data management.  Students had the opportunity to speak with product managers, engineers, and human resource professionals about career paths in the 21st century.  These students asked poignant questions about computer programming, post-secondary education and internships.
Praise to Mr. Raike for setting up the trip!  Encourage the following students for taking the time towards meaningful career experiences:
Archibald, Dante
Boampong-Appiah, Edwin
Chapman, Marlon
Chapman, Ruben
Chico, Ruben
Gomez, Joncarlos
Paula-Nunez Sebasthian
Yinusa, Jeffrey

Disabled. Hyperactive. Disorganized. Anti-Authoritarian. Highly Effective*. I am an instructor of English as a New Language (ENL/TESOL) to exceptional learners ("Special Education") at American High School in Bronx, New York. My joy is guiding teenagers towards literacy and productive lives. In my spare time, I rhyme, study the martial sciences, cook for my wife, and play with my daughter. This blog is informed by my own experiences as: 1) An adult with multiple learning disabilities. 2) A doctoral student (ongoing). 3) A former lobbyist for higher education and public school reform. 4) A Teacher's Union Organizer in multiple states. 5) An educational sales rep for corporate America. 6) A private tutor, both for the privileged and undeserved alike. The purpose of this blog is threefold: 1. To model my experiences for the students and educators that I mentor. 2. To document my personal experiences as I grow as an educator, while commenting on education, labor, and society. 3. To provide public accountability so that I reach my personal goals. 4. To mock, satirize, jive, jeer, jest, jeckle, heckle, hoodwink, bamboozle and flim-flam banal aspects of academic life.** Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Peace. Love. Respect. Jacob Sugar *According to the Danielson Rubric For Teaching, I am rated as a "Highly Effective" teacher on the basis of classroom instructional observations. Combined with the standardized test scores of my students, I am just barely rated as "Highly Effective." According to the NYS battery of teacher examinations, I am in the 96th percentile in every subject area. My GRE scores place me in the bottom 25th percentile for Verbal Reasoning AND Mathematical Reasoning. My credit score is in the Good range, with a poor debt-to-income ratio (you read that part about the Master's Degree and Ph.D, yes?). **Did you see what I did there?
