About Me
Paul Allison has been been teaching ever since he graduated from Hunter College, CUNY in 1983. After a few years in the desert (Utah), and a couple of years at the High School of Art and Design, NYC, he had a wonderful dozen years at University Heights Secondary School, Bronx, NY, where he learned that doing school better didn’t have to be the same-old, with more effort. After that, Paul worked with English Language Learners at the International High School in Queens for three years.

After 9/11, there was a lot of talk about doing meaningful work. At the same time, Paul was finding himself being seduced by new forms of literacy on the Internet. An opportunity to become a “studio teacher” of technology at East Side Community High School, NYC presented itself in the Summer of 2002, and Paul has been at ESCHS ever since.

Another community that Paul is a part of is the New York City Writing Project. He was a participant in the NYCWP’s Summer Invitational in 1985, and he has worked for the NYCWP in various ways ever since. Currently, with Felicia George, Paul is the NYC Technology Liaison for the National Writing Project.

How have you used Web 2.0 to collaborate with teachers you work with? Just curious!

Just watched your Rant from last thanksgiving which I loved. Your Youthvoices project is incredible and very inspiring. i am working with Latino youth in Chicago to create a map of environmental racism and stumbled on your work as we seek models of inspiration. I would love to talk to you. See our Map of Migrations done with kids in chicago and barbados at How can I learn more about what you do?
