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

Creating Global Classrooms: Additional Resources

Learning Democracy through International Collaboration

The Learning Democracy Project is an iEARN collaborative project that was initiated at Riverwood High School in Atlanta, Ga., in 2004. Through the project students in more than 40 countries, including Afghanistan, Egpyt, Taiwan, and Uzbekistan learn about democracy as they study voting processes, analyze media coverage of elections, and look at the major issues affecting the global community over the next few decades. The diverse group of young people explore a wide range of issues, share ideas, and ask tough questions. Read more about the program.
