Ira J. Schildkraut
I have taught Social Studies for 35 years. During that time I specialized in U.S. History & Government and AP U.S. History. I served as Social Studies Department Head for 25 years and created curricula for numerous High School and New York State courses. I served as a testing consultant for the New York State Education Department, writing U.S. History & Government Regents Exam questions and constructing U.S. History & Government Regents Exams. While my first love is teaching students Social Studies, my second is communicating with people journalistically. I continue to satisfy that interest by covering Freeport Village and School Board meetings for the Freeport-Baldwin Leader weekly newspaper.
