After growing up and attending college in New England, I arrived in Kentucky in the summer of 2004. I’ve been here since. When I’m not gardening, bow-hunting, cooking, writing, reading, or watching plenty of football in the fall, I serve in a hybrid “teacherpreneur” role in Louisville’s Jefferson County Public School system. I teach half time English at Fern Creek High School and work on designing and implementing professional learning systems, among other projects, while not teaching. My job is important to me, but it doesn’t define me. I used to spend more time writing solely about teaching and learning, and now I’ve decided to branch out a bit more, usually coming up with more questions than answers! Thanks for stopping by to check out the site. Special thanks to Middlebury College, the Bread Loaf Teacher Network, the CE&S Foundation, and Write to Change in Clemson, SC, for supporting my graduate school work and projects in the classroom.
