New York University says former Democratic Gov.David Paterson is joining its teaching staff.

NYU spokesman John Beckman says Paterson will guest lecture and take part in conferences and events at the school this semester. He says Paterson will work to develop courses he'll teach during the next school year.

Paterson spoke of his plans Thursday in a radio interview with WOR's John Gambling. Local news reports say Paterson told Gambling he's been doing work for the National Federation of the Blind.

Paterson is legally blind. He was New York's first black governor. He faced several scandals and ended a bid for election.

He says "things are working out well'' now. He says he wakes up in the morning and doesn't "have to wonder what went wrong that is going to get blamed on'' him.
