Meet the teacher

I am like a lot of other teachers: young, energetic, optimistic. I teach in a large school in an urban setting in which most, if not all, of my students fit any number of labels you’d like to give them: underprivileged, low-SES, Title I, at-risk, poor.

I believe that character education and social-emotional learning are tantamount to content instruction. I believe that subject expertise is essential to good teaching. I believe that rookie teachers are grossly undersupported. I believe that there is no training substitute for years of experience. And I believe that all of these things can and must be changed.
