Hi, my name is Daffeny Barochin. I am currently a service member in Buffalo, NY mentoring kids from grades k-2 in math and english. I grew up in Manhattan and I studied Philosophy at Stony Brook University on Long Island for five years. During my time in undergrad I suffered from psychosis but 2020 marks my fourth year of recovery and I look forward to what the future holds!
What about the residency are you most looking forward to?
The subjects and the content material for each subject is one of the most anticipated events to which I look forward. I am most certainly enthused at learning methods and procedures on managing a classroom and behavior, even more so just learning more about children and engaging them on how to be their best.
Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?
Mr. Robert McCue introduced me to Philosophy as an AP Literature student through Voltaire's "Candide"(and other books) which I have come to love and by which I abide. The rest is history.
