Tyrone Figueroa, East Boston HS Teacher

A teacher gives back to his community

by Cathie Maglio, Blended Learning Specialist

In my last blog post, I talked about building relationships with people in the schools I work with. Today I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite teachers, Tyrone Figueroa. How Tyrone came to be a teacher is an interesting story.

I first met Tyrone last fall. He was teaching the Senior Math Seminar, one of the classes in which we embed our JFYNet College and Career Readiness program. In the course of working with him I got to know a little bit about his story.

JFYNet Partner School Spotlight

JFYNet Partner School Spotlight

By Patti Parisella, JFYNetWorks Fiscal Director

Our #JFYNetPartnerSchool spotlight series features stories about our partner schools and the good work they do for students and their communities.

What do you think of when you hear the words “college and career readiness”?  Do you think of pathways to college and careers?  Maybe you think of remedial college courses, or closing the achievement gap, or finding success in the workforce?

It can be easy to forget what all these outcomes have in common: Schools.  Incredible schools.  Schools that keep their communities vital by working to help young people develop the skills to thrive in college or technical training and in careers.

    Blended Learning at East Boston High

    Creating opportunity through blended learning at East Boston High School.

    by Cathie Maglio, Blended Learning SPECIALIST

    I witnessed something special in an MCAS Prep class at East Boston High.

    I walked into the class and saw students walking around with their laptops talking. As I moved farther into the classroom I saw they were all logged into their math application solving algebra problems, which may sound like nothing much but they were all working together, helping each other, trying to solve the problems without asking the teacher. And I saw one student explaining how to do a problem in Spanish so other students could understand.

    A Post-Pandemic Homecoming, Smiling through our masks

    Smiling through our masks


    by Cathie Maglio

    The school year started the same as it had since March 2020– working from home, supporting teachers from my schools remotely. The teachers sent me their class lists as always and I enrolled the students into the math and English software. Then I emailed back instructions for students to enroll in their classes. Same old online drill.

    But that changed suddenly in mid-September. East Boston High School had added a 7th grade and those teachers were not familiar with our software. Everyone being fully vaccinated, I scheduled a visit to the school to meet and train the new teachers, just like before the pandemic. I was excited, and a little nervous. It had been a year and a half since I had set foot in a classroom and talked face to face with live teachers and students.
