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.

Giving Feedback to Colleagues with Grant Wiggins
Giving Feedback to Colleagues
Presenter: Grant Wiggins There is a great deal of emphasis on accountability in education today. While accountability is necessary, it is not sufficient by itself. Teachers and supervisors must be given the opportunity to improve, based on feedback. Many educators confuse feedback with advice and commentary. In this webinar, Grant Wiggins will discuss feedback and explore ways to become better at giving and receiving evidence-based feedback. October 22 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET
