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
Paterson BOE

Going Toe to Toe

There are a lot of body parts I’m not particularly happy with (you thighs know who you are), but the one part of me I’ve never been bothered by is my feet. Not to be conceited, but I’ve always thought I had pretty nice feet, as far as feet go. They are not too fat or too thin, my arches are not too high or too low, and my toes all line up nicely in descending order. I ...
