When I say this, I mean no disrespect. I think that this is the greatest...

Lehman as a "thin place"

I consider myself an avid traveler and I instill in my students that same love of travel.  I confess I have difficulty voicing that feeling of awe into words.  How can you verbalize the impact of the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the Taj Mahal in Agra or the Pyramids in Giza.  Eric Weiner gave me a voice in his NYTimes article this past Sunday, March 11, 2012 entitled “Where Heaven and Earth Come Closer.”

This fascinating article focuses on what he calls “thin places.” The term was used by...

What Makes Careers in Teaching Special...

Since Lehman is a commuter college, it gets kind of tough connecting with other students. Many of us are students as well as parents who also work. Trying to take the time to get to know one another can be hard, which leads me to explaining why the program that I'm a part of, Careers in Teaching, is important as well as special.

Being a part of the Careers in Teaching program has allowed me to connect with others who have the same interests and experiences that I am having as a Lehman College...R... Read More »
