Why We Are Doing This
We are a married couple, and we are English teachers. We love what we do. More important, we care deeply about the success of our students and are passionate about the literature that we teach. Yet, we are also tired of seeing the teaching profession taking hit after hit in the media and in the public's eye. We hear that more testing is the answer to diminished learning, scripted lessons will rectify teacher competency, and rushed evaluation metrics will distinguish the good from the bad. In our heart of hearts, we know how misguided it all is. We believe teaching to be a series of dynamic interactions between a teacher -- someone with knowledge of a topic and the wisdom to delivery it effectively -- and a student -- someone that needs to gain that knowledge and believe in its value.
