About Me

I’m a former TV-news cameraman/editor and short documentary filmmaker. Using my videography skills and extensive teaching experience, I’m advocating for the wider use of SERVICE-LEARNING IN ACADEMIC CLASSROOMS. I HAVE OVER FOUR YEARS OF APPLYING THAT TEACHING METHODOLOGY IN MY freshman composition, ESL and documentary film classes AT BMCC and John Jay College, both public colleges within the City University of New York (CUNy) system. 

I AM SEEKING COLLABORATION AND FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP BRING THIS METHODOLOGY MUCH FURTHER INTO MAINSTREAM EDUCATION. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Cause in a Classroom

Cause in a Classroom is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit that focuses on blending service learning into general education classes in the college classroom. This integration requires the students to apply their academic coursework to help local populations in need. This mutually beneficial relationship helps the students to develop professionally and personally. Their semester-long engagement is digitally documented on social media platforms, such as facebook and Linkedin.

This real-world engagement helps bolster their credentials and skill sets as they prepare for employment, internships and additional academic paths.
