When I started this blog, I never intended for it to be a solo effort. So, I’m thrilled to introduce another author on the blog, “Maria.” Maria is one of the many fantastic teachers I’ve had the privilege of getting to know since starting this project, and brings a wealth of experience, insight, and humor to the table. She currently works in a struggling Colorado school district much like I did, complete with the culture of fear and retaliation that too often permeates such places. Thus, although she is quite proud of her thoughts and her writing (as well she should be), for the time being, she will be blogging pseudonymously in order to protect herself.
Please check out the newly updated “About the Authors” page to learn more about her, and say hello!
