I am a learner first and foremost and as well as an instigator of learning. Professionally, I am a middle school teacher aka a professional hostage. I learned and honed my craft in Mt. Lebanon with a fantastic crew of educators and students for over 16 years. I'm on a quest to instigate courageous conversations about learning and children. I'm currently headquartered at The Environmental Charter School where I teach Cultural Literacy, an integrated social sciences and English/Language Arts course. Seeking to create dynamic learning experiences and opportunities that inspire all learners!
I think this is a great idea because it would support the vital need of an essential feedback loop that is currently broken: credibility and truth from a current classroom. Your idea revitalizes the much needed connections that should go both ways between schools of education and the real-time classroom teachers and spaces that teachers cultivate.
