I’ve been a learner since the moment I was born, as were you.  I have worked as an educator for 30 years in private colleges, public universities, as well as public and private high schools.   My students have always inspired me, but the systems and our government have often frustrated me. Worse, the media  is either  on our side, but forbidden to our voices, or simply against us.  With this site, I’d like to voice my concerns which are based on my experience and my own analysis only.  I’d also love to compile some thoughtful voices on the worrisome state of American education. . .along with descriptions of fantastic teaching!
