Finn Freymann — an English teacher at SA Bed-Stuy Middle School — describes teaching as trying to master the unmasterable profession. He joined SA BSMS last year and quickly progressed to a position as lead teacher. For Mr. Freymann, the scholars are his motivation and the BSMS community is one of warmth, laughter, and smart faculty all asking, “How can I help you today?”
The best part of my job doesn’t take place in the classroom. It happens during the one-on-one meetings I have twice a week, with the ten scholars I’ve advised, some for the past two years.
