COMMENT: Costello, Donald (MC1954) wonders about the future for graduates


Donald Costello commented on JNEWS: Natale, Susan [MC????] first female principal ever at All Hallows HS

2019-Jun-18 All Hallows High School …

Is everyone certain that there in fact will be jobs for these new equipped graduates because I am not and we may be giving them false hope .

Costello, Donald (MC1954)

[JR: I think there will always be “opportunity” for humans to thrive.  Maybe the concept of a “job” is outmoded in the new entrepreneurial “gig” economy.  I advise the youngsters to get into their own business and have 10 part-time jobs.  It’s a jungle out there but we’re the APEX predator imho.]

*** begin quote ***

Success for your generation is: (1) ruthless financial discipline — no bad debt; (2) a life long interest in learning — education — a degree — they can’t take it away from you; (3) a NON-OFFSHORABLE white collar job in order to save big bux; (4) a blue collar skill for hard times — never saw a poor plumber; (5) one or more internet based businesses — your store is always open; (6) a free time hobby that generates income; and (7) a large will-maintained network of people who can “help” you.

JNEWS: Natale, Susan [MC1996] first female principal ever at All Hallows HS


All Hallows High School hires first female principal

A staple of the South Bronx for over 100 years, All Hallows High School is making history as the all-boys school is hiring its first female principal.

Susan Natale is the first female principal ever at All Hallows High School.

Natale graduated from Manhattan College in the Bronx. She spent over a decade at Iona Prep in Westchester as their academic dean. But for All Hallows, it wasn’t her past that made them hire her, it was her vision of the future.

“What she’s done in terms of technology, STEM education, and moving kids forward to prepare them not only for the jobs of today, but for the jobs that may not even be invented yet,” says Ron Schutte, All Hallows H.S. president.

Now part of Natale’s plan to include technology in the classroom involves the teachers. She plans on having them all being Google Level 1 certified this year, and that will allow them to use Google Classroom for the students. Students will also get Google Chromebooks that they’ll be able to keep once they graduate.

“We want them to be at the same level as everyone else going off to college and have the same ability and knowledge to use the computer,” says Natale.

Natale’s ability to look ahead includes the school itself and she answered definitively when asked if her hiring meant the all-boys school could go co-ed.

“This school is staying the way it is. This school is going to be an all-boys school. My position and me coming in as first female has nothing to do with co-education coming into play at all,” says Natale.

She’ll officially take over as principal on July 1 and begin working toward her goal.

“Continue to educate the boys and put them in the best colleges, get them the best scholarships, get them placed into college so they ultimately get a job. This is their home and I want to make it the best home that they can have,” says Natale.
