CUNY actually did a wonderful job of teaching me how to be a teacher.>>Mr. Jabouin:
You’ll find immigrants of all different creeds, colors, nationalities attending CUNY institutions
and they’re reflective of the different demographics of the city.>>Ms. Everett:
Most of the people who go to CUNY, they’re from the city. They know the hang-ups, they can relate to
the children. [Mr. Barbier to student]
This, to me is personal, right?>>Mr. Barbier:
Effective teaching, you make your discipline relevant to your students, tapping into their
experiences, and I think CUNY grads are best equipped to reach students where they are.
