I've been writing about and sharing resources on teaching and learning for 30 years. I agree with education visionary Mike Rose that public schools are "bountiful, crowded, messy, contradictory, exuberant, tragic, frustrating, and remarkable." My specialities are the middle grades (4-8), teacher leadership, and connected learning.
