Skills & Interests

  • Education / TeacherEd / Teaching Methods / Science (Intermediate)
    I have given more than 100 presentations and Staff Development workshops at Art, Science, State Education and Middle Level Conferences on the Aesthetic Realism Method, which I used as the basis of my teaching with enormous success for 30 years in New York City public high schools. I have taught this method to educators of all subjects and grade levels since 1975 in a bi-weekly workshop "The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method," along with my colleagues in All For Education. This course is given at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation, a not-for-profit educational institution in New York City.
