Best networking event is today....free scholarships available to veterans who want to teach math Release Date: March 28, 2019
A few days ago I sent out an e mail asking residents to complete a survey about the Greenburgh schools. I received a call from a school board member advising that the school district plans their own survey. They asked that residents who have not yet filled out my survey wait until their community outreach begins. I will be sharing the responses I have so far received from residents with them. And, at their request, deleted the survey I previously posted on the Greenburgh town website from the website. I look forward to working with the school district, community, state and county lawmakers - helping to make the Greenburgh Central school district an even greater school district. Hopefully, we will be able to reach a community consensus what infrastructure action steps need to take place. The NYS Legislature will be approving a budget by April 1. Hopefully, state financial assistance for school infrastructure needs will be helpful to the Greenburgh school district.
The best networking event in Westchester County is being held today --the Business Council of Westchester's Expos at the Rye Hilton. Over 1,000 people attend. Many businesses have booths. If you are looking for work or contacts this event is a must. Hope to see you later at the Rye Hilton! Enjoy the delicious food and ticket prices are reasonable.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR VETERANS INTERESTED IN TEACHING
My name is Dr. William Farber, I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Mercy College, and a United States Navy Veteran (1968 – 1974).
Mercy College is offering a wonderful scholarship opportunity to military veterans and reservists, to earn a tuition-free Master of Science Degree in Mathematics Education and become a secondary mathematics teacher in our high need schools. Great news, the National Science Foundation recently approved our request to recruit a new cohort of veterans for the program! I would especially love for student veterans to become candidates for this amazing scholarship program.
YES, WE ARE LOOKING FOR VETERANS AND NEED YOUR HELP!!
Mercy College, which is located in Dobbs Ferry, New York, is offering a fantastic scholarship opportunity for veterans who are interested in pursuing a career in teaching mathematics at the public school secondary level. The following information describes the scholarship program.
Attention: U.S. Military Veterans
Free Master of Science Degree !!
$1.16 Million Award!!
A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity for Qualified Veterans to Become Secondary Mathematics Teachers
Associate Professor Dr. William Farber,
Mercy College School of Education
U.S. Navy Veteran (1968-1974)
As a Veteran of the United States Navy who transitioned to teaching mathematics, I believe in the reciprocal strengths that Veterans bring to the profession and that teaching brings to Veterans’ lives,” says William Farber, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. “I am convinced that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and team work to the profession, improve capacity- building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students.”
A DREAM COME TRUE
Mercy College has been awarded a major grant of just over 1.16 million dollars from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Teacher Scholarship Program. The grant is for a project to advance mathematics education, with a particular emphasis on United States Military Veterans retraining for new careers as secondary mathematics teachers.
The funding from the National Science Foundation is earmarked for ten Veterans to complete a Master of Science degree in Mathematics Education – TUITION FREE!!
The challenge attached to this good news is that Dr. Farber needs to find ten potential students by the end of this May, 2019!
“ Contact me immediately, ” says Dr. Farber, “if you are a Veteran who already has an earned bachelor’s degree and have earned at least 21-24 credits in mathematics, a Master of Science in math education can qualify you for a career as a secondary math teacher and lead to State Certification.
We strongly believe this program will provide veterans with a new gateway to a purposeful life in a deserving community. As important, we strongly believe that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and team work to the profession, improve capacity- building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students. We also believe that this program will bring benefits to high need schools in terms of providing a new pool of STEM teachers.
