Paterson Parents Helpline

November 25, 2012 at 6:56 PM

Dear Paterson Parents:

After just 212 days on the BOE, I have observed that their isn't a parent support group in P-town. Therefore, I am creating one now.

First, I want you to know that I read every email that is sent to me. It is all confidential, so I will not disclose any info on them.

I will say this: my concerns are your concerns. Not just because of the seat I hold, but because I am a Paterson parent as well.

My two children, Kaniyah & Corey attend schools here just like yours. I have the same worries and questions as you do.

As a parent, I feel having a place to express your desires about what you would like to see in the classrooms is essential to your knowledge and for the academic growth of your child/student. 

Our initial meeting will take place on Saturday, December 1, at the cafe' in Center City Mall. I the time will be 12 pm till 5 pm. I encourage all concerned parents to attend and voice the concerns their have.

You elected me to address your concerns. And even if you didn't, I am here to assist you as well. I am here for anyone who needs me. Let's take the time to meet each other.

For various reasons, I didn't have the chance to knock on as many doors as I originally planned. However, I have using the time I have now to catch up on that. 

If G-d permits, I want to meet all of the parents in Paterson. And with your help, it can be done. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this letter. 

Rest assured that my passion is to serve you - my community, to the best of my ability with G-d being my helper. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime at: (973) 816-6460 M-F 11am-8pm thank you once again.

All the best,

Corey L. Teague
Commissioner, 
Paterson BOE

You’re Only as Old as You Dress

“Do you think this is too young for me?” asked a voice from behind me. I turned from the dressing room door where my teenage daughter was trying on clothes.

The “this” in question was a super-clingy, lycra mini dress in a black and purple animal print.

The “me” who was asking, was a 40-something year-old mom.

I was, quite literally, at a loss for ...
