I am a teacher and I have a vision. Let’s stop the finger-pointing and look at public education for what it is — a complex system of components and influences that must be acknowledged and factored into any substantive plans for improvement.
I want us to come together and create a positive and constructive dialogue that creates REAL, RELEVANT, and SUSTAINABLE improvements to public education for the good of our children and country.

I believe teachers are a quiet group, too focused on their students to have energy to advocate for themselves and/or fearful of reprimand if they speak up. I believe that for change to occur, dialogue must be positive and constructive so my books, blog, and social media strives for positive and constructive ideas. I hope that through my books, social media posts, and personal appearances to be a positive voice for teachers and public education
