"Speak with him. He is such a great example of a dedicated teacher. Hello, Jemele. How are you? I'm doing well, so great to meet and see you. It's so great to have you on our podcast. You know, it's been an exhausting year for all of us, but I think teachers in particular have really born an extra set of burdens. So let's just start by checking in. How are you doing? Well, I'm doing well. So this week is spring break so we can have some time just to kind of like pause reflect. And and take some time for self care around this time last year, I was spring break was kind of taken away from us, and they felt that our students really needed us throughout that time, So it's good that now we can, really, you know, enjoy some time with the family and just to kind of do things around the house and take care of ourselves, essentially just the ordinary stuff of life. How are your students doing? How would you characterize what they've been through this past year? It has been truly difficult for many of our students. But when I think about my students, person variance is kind of really what defines them. You know, they show up, so a lot of them need an additional push, Whether it's you know, frequent emails and phone calls and things like that. Right when they truly know that they have people in their lives that genuinely care for them. They'll kind of go that extra mouth well, for all of our Lister's tell us about your students and a little bit about yourself to Where do you teach? Where do your students live and come from? So I teach in the South Bronx East Bronx Academy for the future, and that's a 6 to 12. Middle school high school, and I love every opportunity that I get to talk about East Bronx Academy because I was just student there and I graduated, and I came back 10 years later to teach I'm 1/6 grade special education teacher. A lot of the students that I work with have very similar experiences as myself, you know, growing up and the single parent household living in the Bronx and I wanted to become a teacher, so that way Could be a positive male role model. And I truly believe that it is easier to build strong students than to repair broken men. Oh, that's a great great description. Thank you. What's the profile of the kind of kids that you're currently teaching? My students are currently living and one of the poorest congressional districts in the country, but they're so motivated and eager to learn and As far as like the profile and the composition of my classroom. I work and I see T classroom which is an integrated co teaching class from and what that means is it's the 60% of the classroom is general education and 40%, especially education. So on average is about 12 students who come in who have learning disabilities and those disabilities. Caray njcaa from anywhere from speech and language. Learning disability. I may have one or two that are labeled as emotional disturbed and the vast majority come in multiple grade levels behind. Did you go virtually almost from the beginning and has that bend the primary instructional? Approach that you've used since last year. Yes, I have been home the entire year. Every now and then. You know, I'm able to kind of get into the building when I know that a particular amount of students are there because I have been taking my students care packages and doing things beyond the classroom. So if I don't have to visit them And I can capture 10 students one day in the same building. It's easier to deliver that there but as far as teaching has been remotely Well, how have you don't with the fact that I'm sure Some of your students don't have access to the technology that they've needed to be virtual students? Do you have any idea How many of your students didn't have either a computer or Internet access when you started, particularly in my class, the elites had between 12 to 15 students who didn't have devices And that was a challenge in itself. Getting a device and then one students had devices. Why five was an issue right? And we, you know Had to work through that, and eventually the school system was able to kind of provide high spots and things like that. Even when our students got the device is it was like the proficiency. So now I need to know how to navigate this device and do this work. And I think that there were many other challenges as far as executive functioning skills, right As your student who was working from home, you know you have two planets the South, monitoring the self control The working memory, the time management and also like the organization, Right, So first period, I'm in this class, and after that class, I have to go to this class. Also, In addition to that You know the active home life, So some students are on with us and cameras are off, or, you know when they amuse yourself to engage in academic instruction sometime is very noisy. It's just so much happening and not having some sort of structure work space where they can actually do their work. And then even at a very young age, my students are 10 and 11 years old and students would say things like, you know, Mr Holmes, I can't be in class next period because my mom is leaving for work, and I have to watch our younger sibling. So you know, throughout the pandemic, we were able to really kind of dive in and see, like a deeper view of what our families are really facing. We're taking a quick break. Stay with us..

Stations where the MTA has to drill make a new tunnel. Then lay the tracks in this case, the tracks are already in place right now, they're used by Amtrak for trains that run on the line from Penn station to new Rochelle and up the northeast corridor. This project would add stations at hunts point park, Chester Morris park and co coop city and onto new Rochelle if they need the new stations would cost north of five hundred million dollars and New York state is already agreed to fund most of it. All right. So why are we hearing about this? Now is there some sort of deadline coming up. Not exactly the rough deadline is four years from now, but the city is holding its first and really one of the only public workshops on this project at four PM tomorrow at Albert Einstein college of medicine in Morris park, while four years sounds like a longtime away it's nothing in infrastructure years.

"To let me jump right in with a couple of clips to the most interesting and maybe the most hotly contested race on the democratic side this is in district fourteen which covers parts of the bronx and queens sort of from jackson heights and college point in queens over the whitestone bridge up through the east bronx we have longtime democratic incumbent joe crowley facing a challenge from community organizer alexandria oh cossio cortez who's running a campaign somewhat emblematic of bernie sanders style insurgency and they were both on our show yesterday some of you heard we're going to replay one clip from each on a difference that emerged between them and that is whether to get rid of ice entirely that's the immigration and customs enforcement agency acronym ice with all of this immigration stuff going on in the news here's a cossio cortez yesterday laying out why she wants to abolish ice altogether anybody who is aware of immigration knows that the idea of family detention the idea and and what is going on is facilities is not new and so the issue here is that ice is an agency that operates outside the scope of the justice department it is now the second largest criminal enforcement agency in the united states it has billions of dollars in budget is the only enforcement agency with an actual quota of people that they are required to detain which means you know should there be less than thirty thousand people that that we're trying to to cross that border i literally cannot contain less lesson that amount so she says abolish ice and start from scratch crowley responded to the question should we abolish ice this way i think ice is acting inappropriately acting like cowboys without being pulled in you know just doing away with the agency itself does not do away with the problem as long as president trump is in office and as long as jeff sessions is an office what the simply do was transferred to another agency but continue if not even a worse way in terms of carrying out what they're doing against the american community and so i think it makes for a great campaign slogan but reality it doesn't change anything so jon o'connor wnyc congressional correspondent is that emblematic of the choice between ocasio cortez and crowley yeah it symbolizes kind of the bigger conversation happening in democratic primaries about you know there's a class of democrat that you know they call themselves progressives that wants to push the envelope on some of these issues that wants to take bolder stances be less kind of step by step progress here they want to take a big leap forward in an issue like abolishing ice is is perfectly emblematic of all of that kind of sums up all of those arguments come in sweep away this agency started from scratch whereas incumbents have really not been warm to that position yet because some of them say the ice does serve some legitimate purposes protecting you know gets domestic violence and things like that insecurity purposes but they're not quite ready to take that step as kind of an addendum to that when we were having that conversation yesterday on the show with both those candidates i had referred to california us senator kamala harris kind of leading the national conversation on this saying we should abolish ice and her office got back to us and said they wanted to clarify for our listeners what her position really is so we're gonna play a clip of california democrat come on msnbc putting it precisely the way she puts it with respect to her position on ice listen i think there's no question that we've got to critically reexamine ice and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing and we need to probably you think about starting from scratch because there's a lot that is wrong with the way that is conducting itself and we need to deal with that was senator harris on msnbc on sunday their office john had said to us no she doesn't really say abolish ice but what she said in that clip and i think what she said elsewhere is we need to probably think about starting from scratch that's the way to buy some time on an issue we don't really want to take a strong position think about starting from scratch but i don't i don't own a ball she quite what one other crowley issue is that.
