Extractions: Those are the exact words I said to Bill Bradley to get him to smile! In this event, Bill Bradley awarded me the 1988 Young Citizenship Award for my active involvement in community service. This photograph was taken during a reception at Brower Commons on the Rutgers University campus in New Brunswick. Notice how Senator Bradley towers over me! Of course, he is a former basketball star, but I have more headroom in cars. Bond. James Bond. Never say never again! After I deliver my awareness program to United Nations representatives at their Special Session on Children, I am delighted at the opportunity to meet actor Roger Moore. Roger commends me on my continuing journey to educate children about disabilities. I was attending a New York City event where Roger Moore and Harry Belafonte were unveiling a statue in honor of Audrey Hepburn's lifetime contribution to UNICEF. Jumping from a plane! In my skydiving experience, I give a twin thumbs-up for the camera at 120 mph. At this moment, I am in a free-fall at over two miles above southern N.J.

Extractions: The teacher center at PS 165 in upper Manhattan is a crowded but welcoming place. In addition to the 15 computers-somehow strategically arranged so they can all be used at the same time-the telephone, the copying machine, the TV and VCR, the laminator, the coffee machine and other equipment, there are racks of books, papers, videos and all the other resources that can make life in the classroom easier for teachers and paraprofessionals. Similar rooms can be found in some 120 schools and other sites throughout New York City, with new centers opening regularly. Individually, they have become the heart of many successful efforts to rejuvenate a low-performing school; collectively, they make up a union-run professional development program that dwarfs many universities in size and scope. The UFT/New York City Teacher Centers Consortium, as it's known, has been around for 17 years. Part of a network of centers supported by the New York State Education Department, the New York City consortium is a partnership of the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) and the New York City public schools as well as the state education department. But the UFT and its 140-strong teacher center staff are clearly the guiding force.
