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.

Mad Hot Ballroom: A Must See for All Educators!

6,000 kids. 60 schools. 10 weeks. 1 dream.


No, I am not talking about any kind of ridiculous standardized test our students take too much of. I am referring to Mad Hot Ballroom, a 2005 award-winning documentary that follows New York City fourth and fifth graders as they journey into the world of competitive ballroom dance. From their honest, hilarious, and quite poignant perspectives, they learn that dance is not just about steps; it's about life!

I do not think any educator -- or adult -- will be disappointed with this touching and inspiring documentary that encourages EVERYONE to give their best, push their personal limits, and never, ever give up.

Happy viewing -- and dancing!!
