My passion is learning
My name is Mark, and I serve NYC schools.
I love to read, write, and talk about language and literacy.
I design and deliver professional learning, look at research, and think about how to help our schools do a better job of improving teaching and learning for our most underserved children.
I grew up in San Diego, and after some dallying with housekeeping and grocery store management, became a special education teacher in the Bronx. I’ve worked to support Bronx schools with ELA instruction, and I now work to support NYC elementary schools with ELA-ENL instruction.
