Best of the Bronx: Science teacher releases EP

A Bronx teacher known for lifting the spirits of his students recently released a new EP.



Joshua Mateo has been teaching Earth science to Bronx middle school students for 10 years. He says he used his experiences with bullying to make a positive impact on students' lives.



"Self-work is one of the most important things that people need to do, but it doesn't happen overnight," Mateo told News 12. "Once acceptance is achieved fully, everything starts to fall into place."



That approach to life led him to his music, which can be found on his website.
