Making a Difference

A few years ago a former student contacted me on Facebook. When he found out that I would be speaking at a conference in Atlanta he said he wanted to see me. He and his wife picked up my wife and I and took us out to a restaurant. He treated us to dinner to thank me for all that I had done for him.  He said " Mr. Blumengarten, remember when I was in your Social Studies class in the eighth grace and you said, " Isaiah you are either going to be politician or lawyer." He went on to mention my involvement in getting him into the ABC Program (A Better Chance)

 A Better Chance took Isaiah out of the violence ridden East New York neighborhood and enrolled him in a boarding school in Massachusetts. He went on to college and graduated from Columbia Law School. Today, Isaiah is a successful lawyer and proud

Teacher Notes:

There were times in class when a dispute would occur and to settle things I would organize a trial on the spot.  This process actually worked and preventing things from getting out of hand.
