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.

Do you have Adult ADHD?
We all know that ADD and ADHD diagnoses are now as common among children and adolescents as names like Rachel, Jennifer, Matt, and Sam. I often wonder, though, whether I too might exhibit these traits.
I always joke about the fact that I have adult-onset ADD, but this quiz passed on by a close colleague pretty much just confirmed it. Not surprisingly, many of my colleagues also scored similarly. What does that say about us middle school educators?! Hehe.
