about the blogger

I’m a former high school Spanish teacher and employee of the DC Public Schools central office. Education is no longer my full-time job, but it’s still my full-time passion. I’m based in Washington, D.C. but care about education everywhere. You can follow me (and other education news sources) on Twitter: @EduEscritora.

    Hi – I just wanted to take a moment to commend you for the comment you left today (3/4/11) at the Washington Post blog post about “The Diane Ravitch Myth.” I absolutely agree with you that you can’t preach that loudly without offering a plan.

    As someone who’s interested in potentially teaching in a high-poverty school district, I was also heartened to read that in your teaching experience, you didn’t allow yourself to be taken over by the idea that the poverty/poor health/stacked odds of your students made your efforts futile.

    Glad to have found your blog. Good luck in your future endeavors!
