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.

"The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'." ~ Dan Rather

A Great Resource for Struggling Teen Readers

Chances are, you probably have or know of some really reluctant teenage readers. No matter what you present to them or how you sell a book, these teens would rather text, be online on Facebook, or just avoid the print media -- especially books -- at all costs. Fear no more!

My colleage passed on an invaluable link you may find helpful with your students and/or children!

You’re probably familiar with It’s a Book by Lane Smith.  (If not, you’ve got to read it.) I’ve included a link to a student-friendly video clip from Amazon™(Maybe some of the people cutting school budgets in areas of literacy need to see this too).
