Thank you very much for approving my request to join the group. I am the Chair of Undergraduate Studies for a small college program in Suffolk County, and a former school psychologist. I hope to learn more about Google Apps applications for both K-12 and college education.

Thanks again!

Is anyone else seeing the new "suggesting" mode in Google Docs? What an incredible replacement for track changes! Nice work, Google. :-)

For many Quaker Valley students, staying after school may be the best part of their day. Six years ago, the district began an after-school program under the direction of Jeff Evancho, a middle school art teacher. While Mr. Evancho was completing his doctoral degree in education, he studied the impact of art on all aspects of education. He learned of Project Zero, a research-based program out of Harvard Graduate School of Education that helps educ...

This is hysterical. Good example of why making people responsible for their YouTube comments is probably a good idea. Careful, NSFW.

Fighting the summer achievement dip...
There's a growing body of research that shows that what students do over the summer affects their academic careers -- and whether or not they will be likely to graduate and go on to college. And since lower-income students are more likely to lose academic skills than their peers from higher income families, New York City has launched a pilot program to help keep these students on track during the summer months.

Education
  • Fordham University
    School Psychology, 2001 - 2011
    I completed my PhD in school psychology, with a professional diploma and master's degree in preschool assessment. My favorite courses were cognitive assessment and program evaluation, and my dissertation was a meta-analysis of emerging autism spectrum interventions.
  • Stony Brook University
    Psychology, English, 1995 - 1999
    I started out as an English major, specializing in medieval literature, but quickly fell in love with psychology and decided to double-major. My time at USB included a yearlong study abroad at Oxford University, which was undoubtedly the greatest educational experience I've ever had.

  • Cooke Center for Learning and Development
    School Psychologist, 2002 - 2007
    I started working for Cooke as a doctoral intern, then accepted a full-time job as a school psychologist in 2004.

While working at Cooke I helped collect, analyze, and report data from a grant-funded program providing educational consultation and services to impoverished neighborhoods in New York City.

My wife and I have been eating here for over five years, and we have always been impressed by their food, service, and atmosphere. Very professional, and very tasty! I recommend their specialty rolls, particularly the dragon roll.

Amazing restaurant, particularly the tandoori barbecue and classic dishes like tikka masala. A bit steep, but the portions are large, and you'll definitely walk away satisfied. Also, a reasonable lunch buffet if you're in the mood for curry.
