Bio: I have been an educator for 15 years now. I currently teach in the Upper School Science department of an independent, college-prep school in Richmond, Va. My idea of what it means to "teach" is constantly evolving and growing as my understanding of my students constantly evolves and grows. This website will provide access to ideas and discussions around hot topics in education and the direction that I believe education in America is taking us. The purpose of this site is to be a collection of lesson plans, Project Based Learning ideas, thoughts on global education, Leadership development, teaching and developing the whole child rather than just pieces of them, and a sounding board for discussions revolving around pedagogy. I would love for this to be an interactive medium so please post your comments so that the conversations can grow into something meaningful.
