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

A look back in time...

This story was taken from a local newspaper and details a really interesting perspective about the local home of my colleague's mother. It is well-worth the read!

If you read the Gazette yesterday for Rockville, Aspen Hill, or Wheaton, Maryland, the cover story was about a home my mom lived in when she was a little girl. My grandparents and my mom and her siblings were pictured in the article below.

(From left) Pigeon Batz, Joe Batz and their son Gary Batz visit the burned remains of a house at 175 Watts Branch Parkway that they rented for five years from 1963 to 1968.  They have a picture of the entire family out front of the house when they lived there.
