Here's my latest sketchy video. I made it as I tried to process the horrific tragedy and the reality that homophobia is still here and still real. So, here's a letter to my son.

For me, going online was what allowed me to change my approach to something very NON-traditional... so the reason why people would be more traditional online is a real surprise to me, but I would blame the LMS. Talk about a mind-numbing space in which to attempt to teach, much less to teach in new ways!

Here's my latest post. If we want innovation, we need to think about it on the pre-service level.

The book has done really well. But a week ago, I was terrified. Here's why.

What if it's time to rethink the way kids do research?

This is my latest post.
I still remember the day. I was in my first year of teaching and I sat there holding my printed lesson plan. This was supposed to be my greatest lesson of the school year. I had planned it for hours, revising various aspects of it until it looked flawless. On paper. But now, in third period, ...

Story

My goal is simple. I want to make something new each day. Sometimes I make things. Sometimes I make a difference. On a good day, I do both.
Introduction
I teach. I write. I live.  I want to do all three authentically. 

Nothing beats smashing oranges in the backyard with my sons, a relaxing conversation with my wife, a venti coffee with a good friend, a long run that seems to end nowhere, alone with my mind.

I feel like this is the best kept secret in the Newberg-Dundee area. The beer is by far the best in the area. Their Broken Bottle IPA is hoppy and strong without being punishingly bitter. Their burgers are phenomenal - especially the one with the buffalo sauce and the blue cheese aioli. However, you can't go wrong with green chili burger or the smoked bacon burger.

I go here once a week (every Thursday) and I've always been satisfied. Choose anything on the menu and it's always fantastic. It's a relaxed atmosphere with service that's casual and friendly. I highly recommend it.
