Cybrary Man - The Final Tour!
Official Retirement Date from the New York City Board of Education: February 1, 2002
Best of Luck to all My Former Students and Colleagues

Short Bio of Jerry Blumengarten

I taught for 32 years in the New York City school system.  Even though I was a licensed Social Studies teacher I taught most subjects (Language Arts, Science, Math, Computers...)for grades 6-9.  I wrote curriculum for my school district, the NYC Board of Education and Open Doors a school-business partnership. I was also a lead teacher and cooperating teacher. Cybrary Man's Educational Web Sites started April 11, 1999 as my school's library website when I served as my school's teacher-librarian.  I was elected and served two terms on my town's library board of trustees. I now live in Florida.

At the same time I was teaching I wrote educational materials for the utility industry. I enjoy presenting how I wrote one of my educational activity booklets in person and skyping into classroom all over the world. After retiring I moved to Cape Cod, Massachusetts and helped write the Mashpee Town Charter, get funding for a new library and revise the local school district's curriculum.

On Twitter I was a member of the #edchat team for five years and the originator of  #engsschat.  I have been a guest moderator on the following chats: #ntchat #engchat #sschat #gtchat #elemchat #1to1techat #oklaed #mdeschat

I have given the opening addresses and or sessions for #ntcamp, #edcampCitrus, #edcampSpaceCoast, #TeachMeet GA, #edcampBirmingham, #edcampSocial Studies, #edcampOrlando, #edcampBoston, #ISTE12, NCSS #sschat session, and TeachMeetKY12.

 I was a Featured Presenter at #METC13 and I have skyped or done google hangout into many conferences throughout the country. I was a Featured Presenter at #GaETC13.  I was the keynote speaker for Tomorrow's Classrooms Today in Philadelphia 2015

At #ISTE2014 I gave  workshops: Twitter 101 and Mystery Location Calls, was on a panel of educators for the Educators Teacher Lounge, moderated a live #satchat for school leaders (I chose the topic and questions for How to Start a Tech Revolution in your School or School District)

At #ISTE2015 I gave a Twitter 101 workshop and presentations on professional development and connecting on a global level.

I also presented at #FETC in 2016

Our book (by @wkrakower @plnaugle @cybraryman1) features Mystery Location Calls:

Connecting Your Students with the World:
Tools and Projects to Make Global Collaboration Come Alive, K-8

"Cybraries (and the cybrarians who tend to them) are scouts out on the cyber frontier who are classifying and categorizing the wealth of riches available to educators and students. This week we celebrate these newfangled information specialists who persevere to bring us the best resources available by thinking outside the box. Thanks to ..Jerry Blumengarten (our very own cutting edge cybrarian) for submitting recommendations for this week's issue!
