Some Things To Share

A while ago I set up a sister blog called American Teaching Stories. This is where people can write something about teaching and get it up somewhere. At first, not many people were writing. Then I just started to ignore it. Now, more stuff is coming in. Much of it is thoughtful, provocative and should be shared.

So, this is sort of an official re-launch of American Teaching Stories. On this blog you will find stories that move you to laughter, tears and anger. Maybe other things as well (jealousy, hatred, indifference, despair, melancholy, maybe you’ll become a “cutter”, etc., I don’t know), but I think we have the basics covered with laughter, tears and anger.

I have three pieces that I would like to share with you. When you click on the links, you will be directed to American Teaching Stories. Do not be alarmed.

If you have something you would like to submit, send it to [email protected] Please put “stories” in the subject line. I understand that you will most likely wish to remain anonymous. I will never include names, email, etc. unless you instruct me to. Otherwise, I will assume you wish to be invisible.

Meanwhile, here are some things I thought you might like:

The Grass Isn’t Always Greener

Exasperation and Wanting to Teach
Someone who really loves teaching sounds like she’s about to bail. Bill Gates and y’all bitches in the front office better take notice.

Thanks, Everybody…send me your story.

    Thank you for sharing these stories. I enjoy reading them, and am saddened/maddened/sickened/frustrated by what’s happening to our profession. We have yet another PD faculty meeting this week, so I’m sure I’ll have another story for you.
    Keep up the great work on both blogs!

  3. I just subscribed and am already writing a story in my head! I’ll let you know if/when it’s ready to share.
