Thanks for stopping by! I know you have a lot to read and I’m grateful for a few minutes of your time.
This blog is meant to be a journal and a conversation about education and the work of teaching. I am an English instructor at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska. I love the work, but it’s difficult. My students face a great many challenges in getting their education. I want to have a dialogue about those challenges.
This blog is also a digital journal of my work this semester in graduate school. I am taking a class on Paolo Freire, critical pedagogy and social justice education.
Justice in education and the world are deeply important to me and I work to make my classroom a space for critical literacy and critical thinking, which I think are essential for a just world.
I hope, finally, that this blog can be a space where a dialogue about education happens. There is a lot of work to do.
Thank you for reading.
