Ammon School Introduces “Explore NYC Schools” Initiative at Queens High School

On November 16, 2018, the Ammon School kicked off its first “Explore NYC Schools” initiative with the New York City Department of Education at Thomas A. Edison Career and Technical Education High School (Edison CTE) in Jamaica, Queens, New York.

Mirella Avalos-Louie, Ed.D., director of the Ammon School’s Office of Professional Experiences and Community Engagement (PECE)—formerly the Office of School and Community Partnerships (OSCP)—and six Scholar Teacher Education Program (STEP) students visited Edison CTE. As hosts, the high school’s principal Moses Ojeda, M.A. ’09, and Gina Paulson ’10, M.S.Ed. ’11, assistant principal and guidance counselor, invited the STEP students to observe various classes, tour the school and participate in staff discussions on what to expect as a new teacher, teacher evaluations and cocurricular collaboration on the tenets of the Model UN.

This Ammon School-wide initiative will involve students from its other departments in future high school visits.
