Setting the Stage

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.
