I spend a lot of time thinking about the US educational system. I’ve been mulling over some ideas since this summer and never could come up with the right way and the best time to present them to you. So what I decided is to just put out the grand scope of what I’m thinking,Continue reading “A Different Vision for US Education”

I’ve literally been the last person on a plane. I’ve heard, “Paging Passenger Roshaunda Cade” as I ran all the way through DFW to reach my gate and breathlessly begged to be let on the plane just as the attendant began shutting the door to the tarmac. I panted my way onto the plane, threwContinue reading “Being First”
Teachers go to work every day, not school. Teachers are content specialists, like most people in their jobs. Whatever their subject areas are, teachers know them well enough not only to teach them, but to make split-second adjustments as they go. Teachers are also managers, dealing with hundreds of humans in various contexts in theContinue reading “Teachers are Professionals”

I went to the first class, left at the end of class, marched to the registrar’s office, and dropped it.Continue reading “Reading and Journaling are Low Entry Threshold Endeavors”

Will school be virtual? Will it be brick and mortar? Will it be hybrid? All ways of going back to school have positives andContinue reading “Educator Self-Care Ideas to Try Right Now”
When hearing the term educator, many people envision a classroom teacher. That’s an accurate depiction of an educator, but it’s not an all-encompassing one. I’ve worked in education my entire adult life, even before I graduated from college. As an undergraduate, I was an RA in several different types of residence halls, and I tutoredContinue reading “How Do You Educate?”
