Paula Wagner here…For the past 15 years I have been teaching high school history in a Brooklyn public school. I have also worked as a photographer (MANY) years ago and am looking forward to combining my two loves–photography and history– in this program. I have enrolled in the certificate program, full-time. Friedman’s book is nostalgic for me, as well! I’m enjoying the dichotomies he sets up for each section of the book.
My academic background is an undergraduate degree in Social/Cultural Anthropology and a Masters in Social Science Education. I am currently interested in early photographs of the New York Public School system–particularly the high schools.
‘Looking forward to meeting and learning much from all of you!
