We continue our 20th anniversary intern alum spotlights with Andrew Mikolajczyk, Marist ‘13

Andrew majored in History with a Public History concentration and is now a high school history teacher in Newark, NJ.

He offers the following memory of his time at HRVI:

I had some great times at HRVI. A lot of my projects involved research and creating resources for teachers to use when teaching about the history of the Hudson River Valley. This really helped me as an educator because I knew how to prepare materials for a classroom, specifically history. While being based out of Newark I don’t have many opportunities in the curriculum to go over Hudson Valley history, I do utilize it during my pre-American Revolution units and my American Revolution units. As well as my in-depth knowledge of Franklin Delano Roosevelt thanks to being a few miles away from the FDR library while living on campus.
