I have been teaching junior high English since the fall of 2005.

This is probably not obvious based on the writing on this blog.

I adore my job and I like to think I’m kind of okay at it. I haven’t been fired and I don’t get hate mail so I’m assuming others think I’m kind of okay too. This is good news to me because I love my students to pieces and look forward to seeing them every day.

Sometimes I write about teaching on the blog. If you try an idea I’ve shared, I’d love to hear about it.

  1. Hi, I love the title of your blog!
    I used to teach middle school science (before kids – it’s been awhile!).
    I love middle schoolers!!
    Can’t wait to read more of your stuff!

    • Ahhh I love them too. So much! It’s a rare breed of people who do find them endearing. Glad to have found another! 🙂

  2. Thanks for your plan on narrative writing using Skippy John Jones. I was looking for a more interesting way to get my students started on their narratives this year and I think this will be great. I will let you know! Keep posting your ideas!

  3. I can only imagine teaching middle schoolers! I’m an SLP in a K-5 school, which I love. I give middle-high school teachers lots of props! Thanks for the reading suggestions! I’ve heard a lot of good things about “Wonder.”

  4. I’m an SLP at an Inclusive Preschool. I had been working with middle schoolers on the spectrum prior to my current position and loved it! Middle school kids are intriguing-especially those with autism! Happy teaching (I started in 1975 and am retiring next year…it will by my 40th! I am tired and want to focus more on my running and triathlons!)
