My mother, Phyllis Leah Abrams Teitelbaum, would have been 89 today. She passed away almost two years ago.
My mother was born and raised in New York City. She was a product of NY public schools, and a first gen college student. She studied Economics at Brooklyn College. After a couple of office jobs, she became a teacher. She taught in NY public schools for most of her career.
We are delighted to be hosting our first First Gen College Retreat on Saturday, June 3. Please join us if you are currently a first gen college students, and spread the word among friends, classmates, and first gen college students in your life.
