Teaching Underground

After teaching together for over a decade and sharing our stories and insights with each other across the hall and at the lunch table, we've decided to open a window to our little part of the world.  We could never provide comprehensive insight into the American public education system, but we can provide insight into some of the teachers, students, parents, and citizens who make our system what it is today, for better or for worse.

We hope that by sharing from our experiences that others may find ways to relate.  Maybe in some way, our "lunch table" just got bigger, and instead of three or four people sitting in the basement helping each other navigate the complex interactions between adults and children we've taken a step toward a community that moves forward together in conversation and action to make a difference for the better.

We aren't as concerned with "Waiting on Superman" as we are with becoming super men and women leading a generation to become super themselves.
