As a public educator, I aim to share my story with those interested about what really happens inside today's classroom. I hope my stories inspire, educate, and entertain you, as the calling of teaching is never neat or predictable. Please note that my blog content does not necessarily reflect the viewpoints or beliefs of my school district or colleagues.

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.

Teams vs. Groups -- There's a BIG Difference!
One of my wonderful assistant principals recently posted a link to a short video she had seen at an Assistant Principal training seminar on groups versus teams. How timely!
I truly believe that it really speaks to the work we have been doing in our school as an instructional leadership team to improve how we function. Perhaps it can also provide us with a stepping stone we can use towards our continuous improvement.
