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.

From a Special Former Professor....
This is a message from my former advisor at the Harvard Ed School, Professor Eleanor Duckworth, who is a gem to know and have the privilege of being taught.....
I decided you might want to see this. Harvard Thinks Big is an evening where 8 to 10 Harvard professors talk for 10 minutes each to an audience of undergraduates, at Sanders Theater. The organizeer, Peter Davis, started this when he was a Sophomore, 2 years ago. Last year he took T440, and this year he invited me to be one of the speakers. (Are you here, Peter?)
I'm disappointed that I felt I had to read it. To say anything significant in 10 minutes I felt I needed to get every word right!
