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.
Super Teacher's Job is Never Done!

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.

Live in MD and interested in local history?
Check out this event, which one of my Media Center Assistants is helping to coordinate!
The “Quince Orchard Colored School” was the only school for African American students in this area until the early 1950’s. One of our former students, Anna Blue, created a wonderful documentary on the school as part of earning her Girl Scout Gold Award.
On Saturday, June 23 the Pleasant View Historic Association will host a “JuneFest” on the property from 12 – 4:00 pm. Among the activities for the day will be showing Anna’s DVD. I’ve attached a flyer about the day.
