slice of life

I teach Writing Workshop, Language Arts and Social Studies to sixth graders at a middle school in suburban New Jersey. This blog is my attempt to capture all the "stuff" that goes into my teaching life - the planning, the dreaming, the reading, the preparing, the hoping and (above all) the kids.
Please note that the content of this blog is my own. It does not reflect the opinions of my employer.

    • I think we all feel this way. A college prof once told me that no one can be prejudice free. He said the work was to have and own our prejudices rather them them owning us.
      Almost all my students now are bi-racial. I really want to see them for who they are, not through my lenses of fear.
      Thanks for your brave writing.
