Mr. Joshua Brooks
Teaching is a labor of love. Here is my anecdote. Growing up in the Bronx, I attended New York City public schools. I attended college at The University of Buffalo (UB) in Western New York, majoring in Black History and studying English Literature. After graduating from University of Buffalo, I commenced the next stage of my academic career at New York University (NYU). Through diligence and resilience, I received an academic scholarship to study at NYU's Steinhardt Graduate School of Education. This is my fifth year of teaching and mentoring at Marion P. Thomas Charter School (first year at the high school). There's nothing more magical than sparking the minds of the next generation of critical readers and conscious writers. It's incredibly inspiring. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports, reading, writing, and spending time with my winsome wife, and dazzling two-year old daughter (Laila Sophia). I'm excited to create a lifetime worth of memories this year!
