In addition to my stand-alone blog posts, I enjoy when my writing is part of a series. These types of posts keep me writing, add continuity, and help connect me to something bigger.
• A Thousand Words a Day
During the 2022-23 school year, I am taking one photo a day. A modest attempt on my part to move beyond the written word.
• Rethinking the Physical
During the 2022-23 school year, I discovered a strong desire to reevaluate the physical environment of my classroom. These posts capture that process.
• Meditations on a Cogen
Summaries of the cogenerative dialogues I had with my students during the 2021-22 school year.
• Student Letters
Anonymous letters to students, both past and present. Personal, heartfelt, and full of humanity, these are some of my most treasured writings.
Compact poetry that I use to capture important moments in my teaching. They’re spontaneous and immersive.
• Murdock Letters
My colleague Stephanie Murdock and I write open letters to each other and post them on our blogs. As white math teachers, we hope the letters help us improve the antiracist stance we take in our lives, classrooms, and school.
• Cogens for Social Justice
This series documents three cogenerative dialogues that I used to plan an activity that celebrates farmers of color and exposes the systemic discrimination they have faced.
• My Two Cents
During the 2020-21 school year, which was fully remote, I wrote two sentences every school day to capture some of my impressions, feelings, experiences, and thoughts.
• A Day in the Life
These posts chronicled the 2016-17 school year by exploring “a day in my life” as a teacher.
