How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Co-Founder ,

New York On Tech

Our organization creates pathways for students into degrees and careers in tech. I am mainly responsible for guiding our vision and strategy. I lead New York On Tech (NYOT) on its mission to prepare the next generation of technology leaders emerging from New York City. I am committed to developing, mentoring and providing support to students interested in the field of technology.

Independent teacher and editor ,

I get up at 2 p.m. Five days a week, in late afternoon and evening I meet with classes of 1 - 5 students ranging from 8 - 18 and occasionally adults. From time to time I edit a book or major scientific article, typically working at night and sending comments to the author that he or she can respond to the next day. In my classes, we read aloud and discuss stories, articles, and books whose conceptual level and vocabulary are typically well above the assumed level of the class. We stretch.
