    Long shot here but looking for help getting in touch with any NYC principal

    Hey all. I am trying to become a substitute teacher or para/teachers aid in NYC. I plan to use either of these to figure out what grades I want to focus on when I start graduate school in January. In order to become one you need a NYC principal to nominate you. I even tried asking at the schools where I graduated from and I cant even get a meeting with a principal to discuss this. Either no one answers the phone or i'm told the principal is too busy to meet with me. Can anyone here get me in touch with a principal or is a principal? Any help anyone can provide will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I believe Bing is a principal, although in Buffalo, not NYC.

    Just go to a school and scribble some graffiti on some lockers. They'll send you right to the principal's office.

    I'll totally hook you up with my son's principal.

    "Hey, Ms. Jones....yeah, I know this guy who really wants to become a para or a substitute and wants you to nominate him.....whaddyasay? What? Well, I don't actually know him know him. I know him from a messageboard I post on. Actually, come to think about it, I've never actually seen him before - he has 33 posts in 4 years. What? Oh, its JI - a Jets messageboard. Yes....that's true, he probably is pre-disposed to be easily agitated and surly seeing as he's a Jet fan. Hmmm interesting question.....I don't think he knows Cookiemonsta. OK, I'll hold."

    I'll get right on it.

    That's just the kind of man/woman/paratrooper we've been looking for! 89k to start, 3 months off a year, lunch included.

    This is what happens when you disappear for 3 years at a time. You lose touch with common (or is it c'mon) Hampur parlance.

    Did I just defend FF2? <Crash seen in the lobby spraying himself with industrial strength fire extinguisher>

    I believe Release the Animal is a Principal.I believe Gaggoots is a Principal. BensBigAngle7 is no Principal, as is not mr. GJ&Hamb. That covers it.

    Here in San Francisco I go to Jewish Vocational Services. They show you how to use a research library, to meet the people important to your job search. They may have data that can help you answer your own questions.



    Right now I would hammer out all the questions that I want answered, and put them in a letter. Send it to principals near you. Then follow up with a phone call.


    Remember, this is all so you can make an informed decision on your career. Such sincerity will work. good luck.
