Have you ridden the New York City Mass Transit System lately? Yes? Then, have you boarded the flight to the bizzaro world of city public schoolteaching? Attracted by those adorable Teaching Fellows advertisements? Make a Difference in a Child's Life. Little do you realize when you get placed in the Grade F schools that you have entered The Twilight Zone! Is it the children? No... it is the adults! You will spend so much time worrying about your five or six supervisors thatyou and the children are on the same side. I make many colleague- approved suggestions in this manual as I have been out in the force for a couple of yearsand have somehow survived. The children are wonderful gifts to the world. They make mistakes, like getting caught bringing in a machete purely for protection when he walks home from school. I would say 85% of my school's students are endearing and struggling young learners that you will fall in love with and treat like your own. However, to see the forest through the trees you need to follow the tips I provide in this manual. The most important one is to use edu-babble as much as possible. I provide a glossary at the back of the manual to be cunningly whipped out when you realize you have no idea what the principal is referring to.
