    Faculty Friday: Interview with Mr. Pinnolis

    By: Joseph Hirsh '22 (Originally published in the Shevuon Hatichon, January 31st, 2020)

    Q: When did you become interested in teaching? Why?
    Well, I have been teaching for a very long time. I think my first year was at the University of California-Berkeley 37 years ago, so at a college level first. I taught at Berkeley, then Virginia Commonwealth [University], and then the University of Florida, and then at a high school in New York and other types of informal places: At a JCC in N.Y., at Camp Ramah... I love teaching. I have always loved teaching. There is something very satisfying about the process of watching and helping students expand their understanding of the world around them, expand their understanding of themselves, and that’s amazing work and holy work, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
