I am a retired Professor and High School teacher.  I am also a practicing attorney in New York State.  I taught Advanced Placement US Government, Advanced Placement Comparative Government and traditional High School Government for over ten years and was the History Department Chair. I also taught Criminal Justice at the collegiate level for over ten years. 
I know it is important to introduce a fact based, non biased lesson to students that will foster discussions with their family and peers. Recently I had the opportunity to teach Cyber Safety workshops with an Educational Counselor in NY.  I was in awe over the lack of student knowledge regarding the appropriate behaviors when sending out texts, photos and posting online.  It is my hope to help students protect themselves and avoid dangerous and legal situations.
