Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. ~ Author Unknown

My goal is to reveal one teacher's humble journey of self-reflection, critical analysis, and endless questioning about my craft of teaching and learning alongside my middle school students.

Sometimes, only a few words are needed to make your day....

Today, at the end of one of my classes, a male student I've been working with a lot this year said to me:

Coming from this particular student, that was a compliment in a million. Thanks to him, I succeeded in avoiding a case of the Mondays and left my classroom with a refined sense of purpose and excitement for my profession.

Sometimes, all it really takes is a few simple, meaningful words to make your day as a teacher....
