I’m veteran public school educator in the midst of my 15th year in the classroom. Two years ago, my wife Rebecca and I embraced a “sabbatical” of sorts, traveling globally for seven months–this served as a bridge between living and working in Kentucky to our return to New Hampshire, our home state. I approach travel and education in a similar manner–they both quench my deep curiosity and appreciation for the elaborate tapestry of human experience.
As a writer, I’ve transitioned from solely first-person and how-to pieces relating to my own classroom experiences. I’m now actively pursuing education journalism, non-profit storytelling, case studies, and feature stories, among other genres. I love to learn, and I’m jazzed to be branching out in other areas for publication.
Thanks in advance for checking out my work, which has appeared in The Atlantic online, The Washington Post, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Education Week Teacher, and NEA Today, among others.
