  • Build Relationships With Your Students on the First Day

    One topic that ignites my passion is literacy. During my residency with ACTE I have developed several connections but one of the most enjoyable has been with USA TODAY Education. I have been writing for their CTE Teachers Lounge and Tip Jar. These sites have great ideas for your classroom and the latest buzz on topics in education.

  • Leadership Development Continues

    Sturgis Brown High School is gearing up for the third week of school, and I must admit, it is great to be back in the swing of things! Our three days of in-service focused on the Boys Town Model for a well-managed classroom, project-based learning activities, department meetings, meeting the new superintendent and an open house for incoming freshmen. My Culinary Arts class is full and the youth internship students are getting hands-on learning in their prospective career fields.

  • Begin With the End in Mind

    Struggling readers often find themselves far behind their classmates. Due to the fact that the difficulty of school reading material has increased faster than their ability, they find themselves frustrated, and in turn give up on the reading assignment and associate the activity with failure. However, frustration can be just as detrimental to an advanced reader who is not challenged by but bored with a reading assignment.

  • Teaching for Student Success

    We’re well into the new school year and teachers are feeling the heat to improve student achievement. History tells us that we must prepare for the future. If what we are doing isn’t working to achieve our goals, then we must look at ourselves and decide to make changes within us—our teaching styles—instead of blaming our students. Our students are our stakeholders and just like a corporation, we need to meet the needs of our stakeholders and customers if we want education to prosper. How do you plan on thriving this year?

    Hello everyone! I apologize for the delay in updating; anyone involved in education knows how busy the first several weeks of a new school year can be. While it is busy and sometimes frustrating, I do enjoy this time of year!
