A true ‘renaissance man’ Jump starts the classroom scene at a Brooklyn public school – NY Daily News

Frank Jump prepares to read and showing slides from his book 'Faded Ads of New York City' in an appearance at the Queens Historical Society in Flushing - ROBERT MECEA FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Author, AIDS activist and ‘urban archeologist’ Frank Jump is now also a civil servant, teaching at Brooklyn’s PS 119

 by Lisa Colangelo for the NY Daily News

Frank Jump is one of those people who is impossible to describe in a title, a sentence or even a full paragraph.

He is an urban archeologist whose photographs of fading advertisements have brought him acclaim. He’s also an accomplished musician and writer.

Jump is an AIDS activist who has defied all odds since finding out he was HIV-positive more than 25 years ago.

To say he’s a survivor would be an understatement. Jump beat a bout with cancer about 10 years ago.

Add to that list the title of civil servant. Jump is a New York City schoolteacher at the P.S. 119 Amersfort School of Social Awareness in Brooklyn.

Agent Rhonda.pngSapphire  Well I’ve gotten new info that there’s this hyper girl also named Sapphire going to sign up who looks like this: Agent Sapphire.png. I just can’t stand the confusion they’ll have trying to figure out who is who. ” Today is our day. To go outside and deactivate or reprogram the Morcubots. S. P. A let’s go! ” Walker commanded. ” Wait! Let’s bring baseball bats and scissors! Break metal, cut wires. ” Derek suggested. Out there we saw a teenage boy who isn’t in the agency but is riding the Morcubot. I think his name is Nick like the one who was in my class since pre-K. This year we only share a French and chemistry class. ” Nick ici! ” I shouted. He fell off the Morcubot.

I saw you’re narration! ” Summer screamed at me. ” For cheerleader you tend show a lot of negative actions. ” She then called me a- Uh Summer will just put soap in my head so never mind.

Agent Violet.pngViolet  ” We must find jobs for people to do. Like the soundtrack, food, clothes. What will wedo? ” I gave my own announcement. ” You are right Mrs. Cutopia. ” Walker nodded in agreement. ” I always do the soundtrack the job is always taken. ” Aaron informed taking a sip of  hot cocoa. I like my cocoa cold, but this isn’t about me.  ”  You make me- ” MC Emi was once again interrupted. ” Why would you sing that song? You got wrapped in tape during that song. ” Aaron reminded. Aaron did have a point. But I wasn’t there and it is a catchy song.
