I work in New Haven. It is a great diverse, safe city. The opportunities are amazing the people are amazing. It is a great city to work in and a great place to go out and eat. There are many places to go for fun. Karoke, nightlife, pizza, cannoli. There are places for the rich, the in-between. If you don't have alot of money, thats ok. You can still have fun in New Haven!
New Haven has a vast amount of history and culture for one to seek out. Like many other cities across the US, there is both affluent communities and poverty stricken. Culture from both sides tend to blend and foster your experience. Both my child and myself have been able to benefit from programs like TAG, UPWARD BOUND,CONNCAT and NEW HAVEN READS. We are able to venture out and discover new things around the city. Museums, restuarants, parks and even beautiful scenic routes. Exposure to the above mentioned are important for growth and balance. Overall, living here has and continues to shape who I am today. From facing struggle to achieving goals, it is my hope to show my son, how one effects the other. It is my duty to help him become his best. The backround of this city provides a canvas for me to do so.
