A veteran teacher shares her story of... 12/6/13: Hoping all of you can do what you love. 8/21/13: As a new school year begins, I want to wish everyone all the best. Today's classrooms are a challenge and I applaud your hard work and dedication. I am continuing to do what I love- teach, but in my own way and on my own terms. I, along with my teammate and dear friend Dana Lawrence Gillis, have established "t2," a classroom beyond the classroom, to provide one-on-one and small group support and enrichment for students in grades k-12 through authentic and creative teaching and learning experiences. You have all been such a source of inspiration and support for me. To see what I'm up to, check out . Thank you. Be you. 5/26/13: The outpouring of love and support is overwhelming. I originally intended for this video to be watched by my administrators and my community; I had no idea it would reach so many. The thousands of stories already shared with me from around the globe that mirror my own are both critical and heartbreaking. I cannot change the system from within, so I leave to allow myself to continue teaching in my way, on my terms. I never planned on giving up, and I never will. If you are interested in learning more about me and my future educational endeavors, feel free to visit . I have the deepest respect and gratitude for those whose voices join with mine, and for those who are still fighting to find their own.
