Teaching, as Healing, at Ground Zero
Jay, Karla
Across the Disciplines, v1 spec iss 2004
Though Pace University's Civic Center campus is just two blocks from where the Twin Towers stood, they have never thought of themselves as the epicenter of anything. They are usually a footnote to New York University or Columbia. To read the media after September 11, 2001, one might have thought that New York University was the closest school to ground zero. So, it was a great surprise when they found themselves at the center of something so horrific. In this essay, Karla Jay revisits the horrific day that changed her life forever but also gave her an opportunity to reevaluate what it means to be a teacher.
