The posts below have been imported from my Edublogs account, which died a slow death in 2014 after seven years of not-so-consistent blogging. If you’ve glanced at the About page, you’ll guess that my posts from that period address some aspect of teaching. I pulled these posts into this site for a couple of reasons. These stories are me. Not just my history, but me. So any site I’d build to share about me and my work should include them. However, I’m compelled to include them because there are a few that I really love.
Here are a few on my short list:
- Burning down the house
I loved being twelve. Sometimes I wish… okay, never mind. My two sons love to remind me just how dumb I was.
- I’m not fickle; I’m a kangaroo with sticky feet
This is me. Like, really me.
- Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt and children everywhere
The author of my favorite summer read found this post and commented.
- My “wow, what a life” list
My Uncle George was larger than life.
- Beware: You eat lunch with a vampire
Stay positive. Always. Also, I believe this was the one Teach Hub asked for me to share with their readers.
- Lessons from a pool turtle
I like this one because it’s gross.
- An epidural of courage
I share about my writing for the first time. Turns out, the beginning was the easiest part. I’m going to need a full body numbing agent the day I finally publish.
