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.

Go MD Public Schools!
“This week, we received the great news that Maryland's public schools were named #1 in the country for the fourth year in a row by Education Week Magazine. I'd like to thank our students, parents and educators for continuing to achieve at unprecedented levels.”
This week, we received the great news that Maryland's public schools were named #1 in the country for the fourth year in a row by Education Week Magazine. I'd like to thank our students, parents and educators for continuing to achieve at unprecedented levels.
From the early days of our Administration, job creation--and its primary ingredient, education--has topped our agenda. Together, during recessionary times, even as we've cut $6.8 billion in state spending, we've made record investments in K-12 public schools.
Next week, we'll be releasing our proposed FY2013 budget and I can tell you one thing for certain: Maryland's schools will remain a top priority.
Together, we'll continue to build world-class institutions of learning that prepare our children for the challenges of tomorrow. -Governor O'Malley
