What do you do?

I live two lives:  Educator and Artist.

Educator:  I teach 5th grade at PS 3 in the West Village.  I am also adjunct faculty at the Steinhardt School at NYU, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in education.  I also have a blog called The K5, aimed to provide parents of elementary school age children with tricks and tips. The bulk of the info is communicated via videos I created, but there are written posts as well.
