Families already know that the city's many YMCAs offer classes and programs for all ages. But did you know that approximately 30 local branches of the Y have Teen Centers where high schoolers can go to play pool, Ping-Pong, video games, a variety of sports, make art, learn computer coding, get homework help and college application assistance, or just hang out with their peers under the watchful eye of understanding adults? Well it's true, and in most cases it's FREE, too. Contact your local branch to find out about specific Teen Center hours and offerings, as they vary by location. Registration usually has to be done in person with a parent or guardian present.

Teens are welcome up until 8pm, when it becomes 21 and over. Warning: They'll most likely blow an entire month's allowance here.
The Murrow Way
When we have high expectations
for students and provide tasks that are engaging and of high interest, students build self-esteem, increase confidence and improve academic performance.
Having clear expectations is good, giving others the context and intention for them will make them clearer and easier to follow. This is about justification to others. It is about helping people understand the bigger picture. With this bigger picture, people will understand better and commit more easily.
to MS. Lisa Berke!
Be sure to give Ms. Berke a "high-five" when you see her! She wrote a wonderful piece that made it to the Daily News.

1/2 cup light cream or reduced fat cream (or heavy cream)
Before cooking, allow steaks stand 30 minutes at room temperature. Then season all sides with salt and pepper.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil in and swirl to coat. When pan begins smoking, lay the steaks into the pan away from you, in batches of two and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add 2 tablespoons of butter, 3-4 sprigs of thyme, and 3 garlic cloves to the pan. Allow the butter to foam a little and baste the steaks (use an oven mitt, hold pan handle and very carefully tilt pan toward you so butter pools in the pan, and baste steaks with a large spoon).
Baste constantly while cooking for a further 1-2 minutes, or until the steaks are done to your liking. (For well done steaks, flip them a couple more times while cooking until done to your preference.)
Discard the thyme and garlic from the pan and transfer steaks to a plate. Pour the pan juices over the steaks and let rest for 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining steaks, then remove them and let rest. (Discard the thyme and garlic, but leave the second lot of pan juices in the pan.)
While steaks are resting, add the crushed garlic to the buttery juices in the pan. Sauté on medium heat for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the vinegar and mushrooms and cook until soft, then add the cream. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
Serve steak with the mushrooms sauce and garlic roasted potatoes.
