A Little About Me

A little about who I am.  I currently teach 4th grade and have been teaching at that level for 7 years.  I taught 8th grade and outdoor education before I got into the fourth grade classroom.  Currently I have a Master’s  in Curriculum and teacher leadership from Miami of Ohio and in Educational Administration from Northern Kentucky round things out on the education front.   I am looking into a Ph.D. in the near future.

For fun I geocache (take a look at geocaching.com), read, and spend way too much time playing World of Warcraft.   On the other hand, I think of WoW as professional development due to playing with a wonderful group of educators in the Cognitive Dissonance guild (http://cognitivedissonance.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=228854&TabID=1927706).  If you are interested in checking out the game or the guild come make a toon on Sisters of Elune and see what it is all about.

I am currently reading Disrupting Class by Clayton M. Christensen which has me thinking a lot about how and why we do the things we do in education.  Part of my reason for blogging is because I hope to post about my reading and get some discussion going about our profession.  The book is about innovation, but it is more about why schools can’t/won’t innovate.  It is sad at times, fascinating most of the time, and difficult to wrap my mind around.  Hopefully the community will help me figure it out.
