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.

Looking at time differently.....
Below is a link about how people look at time related to themselves. This link is worth watching, especially for any educator who is interested in helping to improve the system so that the material reaches more kids.
I think it explains how many of our students think, especially boys. If we keep in mind that many of the children like to have some control over what is going on, like in their computer games, we may be able to come up with some more creative ways to teach. Great food for thought!
