College and Career Week

It’s that time again; College and Career Week will be October 20-24, 2014! In order to encourage our students to be FUTURE FOCUSED, we really need everyone to be fully invested. CACO staff is asking all staff to show their support by doing any or all of the following:

  • wear college gear (it doesn’t have to be from your own college), such as t-shirts, caps, sweatshirts, sweatpants, pins, etc…
  • wear career-related gear, such as a T-shirt from the Carpenters’ Union or one that says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.”
  • talk to your students about your own college experience
  • talk to your students about your other career (entrepreneur, tutor, sign language interpreter)

Here is a brief calendar of events:

Meet our New Faculty

We have ten new faculty members joining us this year.  The bring extensive experience in New York City schools and other youth development organizations, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the City-As community.  During New Faculty Orientation, which was the week of August 18 through August 22, each new faculty member created a profile so that we could get to know them better.

This week, we will be spotlighting our new faculty members in Room 506 - Sarah Bland and Maria Krajewski.  Sarah is a special education teacher and advisor, and Maria is an RC.  Also included is Andrew A, who was in that week to help out with new faculty orientation.

You can view their profiles by clicking here.

Enjoy getting to know them a little better!  Many thanks to Carl for posting the content!
