Dear Teachers,

Demonizing the unions and Waiting for Superman to come and save the day makes for good cinema and it can help galvanize attention. But education is a little more complicated than that! Of course, all those details would mean a boring documentary, and Oprah's too busy.

But when you go about reforming the system, please just promise us one thing: that you'll leave your scripted (read "teacherproof") curriculum at the R&D lab! We got this.

Teach and be well,


meet What's New or Cool

“I have taught Language Arts and Technology in middle school for twenty years, and I still love everyday! I’m a grandmother of two, but teaching keeps me young. I enjoy creating teaching materials, especially powerpoints. My husband also teaches at the same school!”
