Building a Community of Public Educators at Bank Street

Without a doubt, Bank Street prepares you for the ins and outs of teaching, but the school’s greatest lasting impact on your career is how it connects you to a community of like-minded educators.  Truth is, education can be an isolating career field, even though we’re always surrounded by people. Teachers often interact more with […]

What Makes a Bank Streeter? Reflections on a Decade of Reading Applications

I am approaching a decade of working in the Office of Graduate Admissions at Bank Street. Although I don’t have a definite sense of how many applications I’ve evaluated in that time, I imagine it is over 1,500 at this point! It has been such a treat getting to know many of our students through […]

Meet the Second Cohort of the Early Childhood Urban Education Initiative!

Although Bronx Cohort 1 graduated over a month ago (my goodness how time flies) and we’re still reeling from the heady whirlwind of it all, I have yet to introduce the most recent students of Bank Street’s Early Childhood Urban Education Initiative Program –  the second Bronx Cohort. The first Bronx Cohort, of which I […]

Summer is a great time to explore the city and participate in events that may be both enjoyable and meaningful. For educators and graduate students who may have the season off, keeping up with what’s happening in education and around the city may offer a way to keep our brains sharp even through the haze […]

Commencement 2018— The First Bronx Cohort Graduates!

The drums pierced with a wild blaze through my heart—  the sounds were something ancient and completely mesmerizing. While listening, clapping, and cheering I waved my hands over my  my eyes hoping to assuage the wellspring of emotion rushing through me— tears would have definitely fallen otherwise.

Highlighting An Alumna And Past Blogger For Mother’s Day

In my experience, children tend to say the word mom (or any variation of it) a lot. Many times, mothers are the center of young children’s universes and they bring all of their experiences (and sometimes, lack of experiences) with their mothers to school. We honor the significance of mothers in young children’s lives and […]

IMP Reflections

From our first days at Bank Street, my cohort and I heard legendary tales of the magical and formidable IMP—  and we started classes at the beginning of September so Halloween was still more than a month away, but hearing about  the IMP so early on only added ominous intrigue. We often took walks down […]

Early Childhood Literature– Books For Children And Why They’re My Favorite Thing

Appropriate, quality literature goes far beyond stimulating children’s literacy learning. Books help to convey messages of every kind and illustrate ideas in concrete, visual ways to […]
