Mr. Glickman has spent more than three decades aiding in the development of young minds. He became a teacher of social studies with the New York City Board of Education in 1992, and continues to enlighten his students in all matters pertaining to social studies. From 2005 to 2008, he branched into teaching economics at the Murry Bergtraum High School. Prior to becoming a teacher, Mr. Glickman was a paraprofessional with the New York City Board of Education. He held this role from 1974 to 1982. Throughout his career, he has lectured and been an adjunct professor at Kingsborough Community College, John Hay High School, the Housatonic Community College and the Williamsburg Settlement House.
Mr. Glickman’s own academic pursuits began at Franklin College, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1969. He received an MS from the College of Staten Island in 1997. Mr. Glickman was inspired to become a teacher due to watching his older brother enter the profession. In fact, it was Mr. Glickman’s brother Stephen who helped him get his first job as a teacher’s aide. Many of Mr. Glickman’s family are in the teaching profession. Mr. Glickman was also inspired by his uncle Leon S. Milmed, who was the Attorney General in the 1940s. This uncle helped him pay for college.
Mr. Glickman’s success as a teacher is reflected in his students. While teaching a senior class at John Jay High School, he had a class that fought him every inch of the way because they knew he cared. When the school year ended, it was evident the class had benefitted greatly from him, where there was a 75 percent passing rate. Mr. Glickman is a member of the United Federation of Teachers and the American Federation of Teachers.
