Current Stuyvesant High School Social Studies teacher, Michael Waxman, travelled to Bahrain and Qatar over Thanksgiving on an educational exchange. He was acting as the representative from Stuyvesant for the United Federation of Teachers. Mr. Waxman, well-equipped with Stuyvesant memorabilia and stories of the school, acted as an ambassador for Stuyvesant when he met with several important dignitaries and educators.
