What do you do?

I try to help my students become the best possible versions of themselves.


I love the heck out of 8th graders. They drive me insane just about 100% of the time, but I love them. You just have to treat everything like it's the end of the world -- because to them, it is. And, truly, life with them is way more fun than life among adults.

What should we read?

Mindset by Carol Dweck. Is it ok to say Harry Potter here?
