Welcome family, friends and colleagues. I am an educator in the Boston Public Schools. I started this blog a few years ago, in large part to build an experimental place for reflection and sharing related to my teaching practice. Over the years, it’s become more of a place for general reflections on the small, the incidental, and the ordinary–all the good things of daily life.
Do feel free to explore and get to know me a little better. The Running Commentary blog on this site is private and intended for family and friends. (If you would like access, please get in touch with me).
Otherwise, I am also in the process of building out my other website, The Teaching Pulse, as the main forum for ongoing writing and resource sharing related to my professional life. Do visit, join that site and let me know what you think! On The Teaching Pulse site, I write about glimpses of life in the classrooms and schools where I’ve taught or current visit, as well as other education projects with which I’m involved. If you’re a fellow educator, I hope you see echoes of your own classroom or administrative successes and challenges; if you’re not, I hope you get a sense of how complex and challenging the work is, and a sense of its many rewards.
I don’t mean to be overly sentimental, but I do love what I do.
Thanks for visiting.
