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.

Calling all thespians!
Please read the following exciting announcement from a former peer at Harvard:
Hello, everyone! I am co-chairing a theatre education conference this summer and we are very excited to be featuring Vivian Gussin Paley (whose work first inspired me through T440!) as a speaker during our event. If you know of anyone who may be interested in attending, please direct them to this website for details/registration:http://aateconference.com/ The event takes place in downtown Chicago, July 26-31st, and we're very excited about the program overall. Ms. Paley is currently scheduled to speak on Thursday afternoon, though we have invited her to stay for the full event (through Sunday). Thank you! Sincerely,
