Closing Letter To My Students

Posted on February 12, 2012 at 7:14pm 0 Comments

I can remember vividly being a high school student, anticipating the feeling of relief as I prepared for my final examination. I wanted to move on, thinking very little about any future events beyond playing sports and hanging out with my friends. I did not consider the ripple effects of learning or not learning.



Imagine throwing a pebble deep into the center of a crystal clear pond. The result is ripples that wave one after another throughout the pond, deep from the center, slowly… Continue

I'm Still Waiting for Superman

Posted on February 12, 2012 at 7:13pm 0 Comments

I spent the weekend hung up with the flu, which gave me a chance to watch Waiting for Superman. Watching this probably made me even more sick, but that is for another post.

Do Educators Eat Their Young?

Many years ago I read an article in Time Magazine where they attempted to select and rank the most difficult jobs in the US. The criterion that was used was based on the number of decisions that had to be made on that job in a single day. I was delighted and surprised to see that an Eighth Grade English Teacher position was ranked at the top of the list. As an eighth grade English teacher at the time, I felt both validated and appreciated. Of course, it was an article totally overlooked by most…See More
