Dual-certified teacher looking for a job

Tim Brisley is one of the many teachers who are without jobs due to budget cuts. He last taught earth science in the Albany city schools. He went back to school last year to get certified in elementary education as well.

He substitute teaches when he can (even though that impacts unemployment.) What he’d really like is a job, but here’s an offer he is making to flood victims in Schoharie County.

I am able to do extensive electrical work. If you live in Schoharie County and need help with this, contact me and I will do what I can to help get you back in your house.”

He is upfront that he is not certified as an electrician. Replacing flood-damaged electrical wiring and circuits, doesn’t require one. If interested call Tim at (518) 366-3837 or email him at tbrisley@gmail.com.

    Great!!! NYSUT is doing a real service hooking up people in need with neighbors who can help and are also in need.

    It is disheartening that districts throughout the state continue to lay off teachers and teacher assistants, because of a lack of funds, while they somehow keep finding the money to pay corporations to make: tests, test prep material, and poorly designed “teacher evaluation” systems.

    Just a follow up…

    On August 3rd, I was at my usual Friday “Happy Place” at the Saratoga Racecourse when I received a call from the HR department at Albany City Schools with an offer to return to the district full time, teaching earth science at the high school.

    Despite the new workload added to the teaching profession, I can say that being this busy is a great “problem” to have.

    There is still an ongoing need for help in the communities flooded by the Schoharie Creek, so please continue to do what you can. On this note, I want to give a big “THANK YOU” to the New York Racing Association, who eagerly and generously agreed to help toward this effort last August. I asked if it was possible to help, and they went above and beyond by agreeing to place donation bins throughout the track, naming a race “Tropical Storms Irene and Lee – The Recovery Continues”, and donating $5000 to the cause.

    Thanks to all.
