Monthly NYC-DR Roundtable Breakfast
Reflecting on 10 years with Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary
How do we promote positive school climates for children and youth?
Mark Weiss has been the Education Director of Operation Respect for 10 years. He was a New York City school principal for 20 years, founding the first alternative high school in the Bronx in 1979 and leading that school for 13 years. He then founded a New Visions (grades 6–12) public school, School for the Physical City, which was heralded in a 1993 New York Times Magazine cover story as “A City School Experiment That Actually Works” leading that school for more than 7 years.
Mr. Weiss brings his commitment and expertise in building school communities of respect and learning to his work with Operation Respect. As Educator Director, Mr. Weiss works with a staff of trainers who lead workshops nationally and internationally.
"What I love about Operation Respect is that the inspiration of Peter's music and our approach to introducing social and emotional learning and character development to schools, resonates so strongly throughout the world," says Weiss.
Mr. Weiss has also taught courses for future school leaders in the Administration and Supervision Certification and Masters Program at Hunter College.
