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

What Every Middle School Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests

(From Someone Who Has Written Them)
Charles Fuhrken
"Knowing the test lexicon makes students 'insiders' and less vulnerable to feeling like tests are something that happen to them rather than something that they command. When students are in-the-know about test tasks and demands and understand what is being asked of them, their responses—and ultimately their test scores -- more accurately reflect their ability and knowledge in reading."
-- Charles Fuhrken
