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.

Too often, students "know" the material, yet seem unable to apply that knowledge when taking tests. This webinar will focus on key strategies that districts and educators can use to help students better apply the knowledge and skills they have in a testing environment. Some of the issues approached include strategies for reading test preparation, as well as strategies derived from the learning sciences.
